I am trying to create a code that will generate a webpage. Here is what I have so far. I am looking to just take data that is queried from our server and display it on a page. Their is a form that is populating the ID on the query and all the information is pulling correctly.

It's just when it comes to creating the file and page contents it's getting lost.

<?php

$id1 = $_POST["id1"];

echo $id1;

echo "<br>";

$id2 = $_POST["id2"];

echo $id2;

echo "<br>";

$id3 = $_POST["id3"];

echo $id3;

echo "<br>";

$name = $_POST["name"];

echo $name;

echo "<br>";

$string = $name."-".date("Y-m-d").".html";

echo $string;

echo "<br>";

$pagename = str_replace(' ', '', $string);//remove spaces

echo $pagename;

echo "<br>";

$newyork = ',NY';

$pagetitle = $_POST["title"];

echo $pagetitle;

echo "<br>";

$con = mysql_connect('****************', '*************', '********');

if (!$con)    

  {

  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

  }

mysql_select_db("squarefeet1", $con);

//Query

if ($id1 != null){

//Query for data

$sql="SELECT * FROM `properties` WHERE `filename` =\"".$id1."\" LIMIT 1";

$result = mysql_query($sql);

if($result === FALSE) {

    die(mysql_error()); // TODO: better error handling

}

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){   

//save data



$query1address = $row['addr1'];

$query1city = $row['city'];

$query1borough = $row['neighborhood'];

$query1plotsize = $row['plotsize'];

$query1zip = $row['zip'];

}

$address1 = $query1address."\n".$query1city." ".$newyork." ".$query1zip;

echo $address1;

echo "<br>";

} 

if ($id2 != null){

//Query for data

$sql="SELECT * FROM `properties` WHERE `filename` =\"".$id2."\" LIMIT 1";

$result = mysql_query($sql);

if($result === FALSE) {

    die(mysql_error()); // TODO: better error handling

}

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){   

//save data



$query2address = $row['addr1'];

$query2city = $row['city'];

$query2borough = $row['neighborhood'];

$query2plotsize = $row['plotsize'];

$query2zip = $row['zip'];

}

$address2 = $query1address."\n".$query1city." ".$newyork." ".$query1zip;

echo $address1;

echo "<br>";

}

if ($id3 != null){

//Query for data

$sql="SELECT * FROM `properties` WHERE `filename` =\"".$id3."\" LIMIT 1";

$result = mysql_query($sql);

if($result === FALSE) {

    die(mysql_error()); // TODO: better error handling

}

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){   

//save data



$query3address = $row['addr1'];

$query3city = $row['city'];

$query3borough = $row['neighborhood'];

$query3plotsize = $row['plotsize'];

$query3zip = $row['zip'];

}

$address3 = $query1address."\n".$query1city." ".$newyork." ".$query1zip;

echo $address1;

echo "<br>";

}

mysql_close($con);

$filename = $pagename;

It's just when it comes to creating the file and page contents it's getting lost.

Did you set the pages folder to be writable?

Did you set the pages folder to be writable?

Yes.

chmod the pages folder to 777 and try it again.
