I have in mind a very basic swf file that allows someone to enter data (via dynamic text box), submit this data (via php), which in turns saves it as a file on the Server. This file (.txt) would be used to populate text on the main site. Most of this seems quite straight forward, and standard practice, apart from actually saving the data as a particular file and on the server (or overriding an existing file), which I'm sure comes up against problems such as FTP access and everything else, but I was wondering if someone might have an insight on how this could be done?
that's not a task for the .swf file, that's something you need to do inside your php.. I assume you know how to pass values from Flash to PHP?
Yes I know some basics having created some forms to send the data to email addresses. I'm not adept in writing the PHP though for other commands such as what i'm trying to achieve here. Do you know any good sites to learn more about this kind of thing?
