Writing to file

I want to create a new php page from a form.

It works fine offline but when I upload on my server I've got those errors :

Warning: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 98 is not allowed to access ./inc/top_nav.inc

I guess that's because my file should be executable... how could I do that?

    $fp = fopen("newfile.php3", "w");
    fputs($fp, "<HTML>\n");
    fputs($fp, "<HEAD>\n");
    fputs($fp, "<TITLE></TITLE> ");
    fputs($fp, "<? include(\"inc/top_nav.inc\");?>\n");  
    fputs($fp, stripslashes($Content));
    fputs($fp, "</BODY>\n");
    fputs($fp, "</HTML>\n");
    fclose($fp);

UID is the permissions of your script.
Do you have permissions to write into file on your server ?

try
<?
$o = fileowner("newfile.php3");
print "$o\n";
$o = fileowner("otherfile.php3");
print "$o\n";
?>
and look if the owner is the same.

and then.....wait.... for another comment (just for cibernietic : clear your quiche)

Euh, if you have full access to your server you can change the permissions otherwise it will hard.

Hmm my comment seems to be stupid. :)

Warning: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 98 is not allowed to access ./inc/top_nav.inc

Means that the web process is running with UID 98, and when PHP has "safe mode" enabled, no UID > 1024 will be allowed to do thi.

Either you have to disable safemode
(safe_mode               =       Off) in php3.ini or you will have to move your webserver to run as a UID < 1024
