    who's hosting your website? is it on geocities? are you paying a company to host it? is a friend hosting it? are you hosting it?

    php isn't like html in the sense that you can just upload it and everything works. it's server side, so before i can answer your question, i need to know who's hosting it.

    well for testing the site i would be hosting on my own pc
    but for the site itself it would be a remote server who's hosting.
    i dont exactly know wich one but its a php/mysql hosting type server.

    ok, at first it sounded like you needed help getting php installed, but assuming you already know all that, here's some code to show you how you can save a form submission with php:

    HTML:
    [code]






    [/code]

    save.php:
    [code]
    <?php

    $ff = fopen('testfile.txt', 'w');
    fwrite($ff, $_POST['input1']) or exit("Could not write to file.");
    fclose($ff);

    echo "Saved successfully";

    ?>
    [/code]

    if you're using linux you'll have to make sure your http server has write privileges in the /var/www/html directory (or whatever directory you're using). when you save something from the html page, the php page should save it to testfile.txt in the html directory. it might be worth checking out http://www.php.net .. i dont know what experience you have with programming, but php can be picked up pretty quickly. if you have any questions, just ask.
