Writing to files

Writing to files Can't Post

Hi there,

I'm after a few answers and hopefully some solutions, I'm a technical advisor and I know that you hate it when customers say it, because it's always pretty obvious, but.....I'm stupid Frown

Is it possible to open a file already on a server and modify it? Confused? Let me try to eloborate.

I have a page with a form on it, when submited the form script takes the details sends them successfully via email and creates a page on the fly containg some of the variables from the form. This page is going to be the payment form for a merchant bank, however they wont allow it because the page is created on the fly, so what I need the script to do is call a specific page (That has it's own url on a server permenantly), but pass the variables to it from the script.

I know that I'm asking a lot but is it possible?

Any help at all would be much appreciated.

TIA, and kindest regards
Richard Benwell :cool:

Why couldn't you define the CGI as the page your merchant account should accept payments from? You would just need to make sure to use the POST method to your CGI and not the GET method (which will "change" the url).

Yes, there are ways to modify files on the server, but changing the page your merchant account uses should be much easier.
