Seen this problem around before.

The problem lies in your php.ini file which most likely loads the php_domxml.dll. PHP5 comes default with the DOM extention enabled. php_domxml is for PHP4 and should be commented.

ok i have been trying to get mu page working in PHP5 using SimpleXML.

however i cant seem to add a new node.

my XML file looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<browsers>
      <browser name="Firefox" version="3.0" platform="WinXP" users="46"/>
</browsers>

I want to add a new browser node so my XML file would look like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<browsers>      
      <browser name="Firefox" version="3.0" platform="WinXP" users="46"/>
        <browser name="Opera" version="9.2" platform="WinXP" users="1"/>
</browsers>
<?php
$xmlobj = simplexml_load_file('browser-stats.xml');
 
$browser = $xmlobj->addChild('browser');
$browser->addAttribute('name','Opera');
 
$xmlobj->asXML('browser-stats.xml');
?>

$browser = get_browser(null, true);
 
$name = $browser['browser'];
$version = $browser['version'];
$platform = $browser['platform'];
$users = 1;
 
$xmlobj = simplexml_load_file('browser-stats.xml');
 
$query = '/browsers/browser[@name="'.$name.'"][@version="'.$version.'"][@platform="'.$platform.'"]';
 
$entries = $xmlobj->xpath($query);
 
if(count($entries) == 1)
{
	$entries[0]->attributes()->users = $entries[0]->attributes()->users + 1;
}
else
{
	$browserobj = $xmlobj->addChild('browser');
	$browserobj->addAttribute('name',$name);
	$browserobj->addAttribute('version',$version);
	$browserobj->addAttribute('platform',$platform);
