Writing to a File?

I'm having troubles writing to a file!  Weird.

I have this little routine going :

$dataFile = "http://mydomain.com/upgrademaillist.txt";

if(strstr($emailAddress,'@') && strstr($emailAddress,'.')) {
     $fd = fopen("$dataFile", "a");
     fwrite($fd, "$emailAddress");
     outputStatus("Sign-Up Successful...","Thank you for signing up for our upgrade newsletter.<p>You will be notified via this submitted email address as soon as we have completed the upgrade.<p>Submitted Mail Address : $emailAddress");
     fclose($fd);
} else {
     outputStatus("Sign-Up Error...","That email address does not seem to be valid.<p>Please try again...");
     exit;
}

There is various error checking before, and that all seems to be working fine.... if all the errors result in a PASS, then the above routine get's executed... I get the SUCCESS message, saying that the mail address has been recorded... but, the data file remains empty.

Any ideas?

Maybe you could try to change the link to your file.

Instead of

$dataFile = "http://mydomain.com/upgrademaillist.txt";,

try:

$dataFile = "upgrademaillist.txt"; or the relative path to the file.
