Hi. I have been working on a project that displays data in an XML file. (It's kind of like an API). I know how to parse XML with PHP, and how to make an XML file in PHP, but they don't work together. :)
Basically, I have two files:
xml.php grabs info from a MySQL database, and outputs it as XML.
parse.php loads and parses
xml.php and outputs it as HTML.
If I run
parse.php, it does not load
xml.php. However, if I copy the outputted XML (from
xml.php) and save it as a xml.xml file (and change the filename in
parse.php to 'xml.xml') it works. I'd really appreciate any help.
Content of parse.php:
<?php $doc = "xml.php"; $doc = @simplexml_load_file($doc) or die("Server Error: Recipe not found!"); $title = $doc->title; echo $title ?>
Content of xml.php:
<?php header("Content-type: text/xml"); $dbc = mysql... //gets data from database echo "<!DOCTYPE..."; //xml stuff here echo "<title>" . $dataFromMySQL . "</title>"; ?>
The database connection works, and the DOCTYPE in the XML is ok, so that's not the problem.
Again, I only get the problem when I generate XML dynamically using PHP. If it's a .XML file, it works fine.
Can anyone help me?
