Its simple I am looking for the best method to save a full XML document back to the server in one hit ? Is it possible or do I need to leave it broken down and let PHP build the document. I've read a number of forum articles some suggesting a raw data POST, others AMFPHP, and more than a few using SOAP. As the last two I do not have setup or the time to integrate, I'm looking for a simple dirt answer ? The end task is to save a XML file to the server and mail it back to the client and administrator to indicate the task is complete, provide traceability of information passed and start the ball rolling on the next task in the workflow.
