As simple as this sounds, for some reason I can't get my code to work.  What i am trying to do is have my flash program send an XML object or file to a PHP script to be read and logged into a MySQL database.  I know how to handle the MySQL, and I'd like to say that my PHP is fine too, but at this point I'm not certain.
/* Begin ActionScript 2.0 */

var input_xml = new XML()
input_xml.ignoreWhite = true
input_xml.contentType = "text/xml"

var xml = "http://j2imedia.com/kioskadmin/inc/layout.xml"
var php = "http://j2imedia.com/kioskadmin/inc/layout.php?user=" + user

save_button.onRelease = function(){
	trace(substring(master, 0, master.length - 1))
	input_xml.firstChild.firstChild.nodeValue = substring(master, 0, master.length - 1)
	input_xml.sendAndLoad(server_file, output_xml)
	//input_xml.send(php)
}

input_xml.onLoad = function(success){
	if(success){ trace(this.firstChild.firstChild.nodeValue) }
	else{ trace("Error loading input XML") }
}

/* End Actionscript 2.0 */

/* Start PHP */
<?php
	mysql_connect(localhost,"aquasius","launchme8804");
	mysql_select_db("Aquasius") or die("Unable to select database");
	
	$result = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query('SELECT hash FROM users WHERE user = "' . $_GET['user'] . '"'));
	
	if($result[0] == $_GET['hash']){ $result = 'good'; }
	else{ $result = 'bad'; }

	echo '<?xml version="1.0"?>';
	echo "\t<list>";
	echo "\t\t<hash>" . $result . '</hash>';
	echo "\t</list>";
	echo '</xml>';
?>

I'm not sure what your trying to do with your echo construct, just output the value to screen? there are issues with using echo like this (see http://php.net/manual/en/language.basic-syntax.php) maybe you need to use the asXML method?:

echo $xml->asXML();

You can also give it a filename

$xml->asXML('filename.xml');

let me know if this solves your problem or if you need more help

Cheers

Two things:

1) I hope that isn't your real database username and password - this is a PUBLIC forum

2) Are you urlencoding the XML in the flash before sending it? I don't know enough about actionscript to tell, but I cannot see anything that looks like encoding

Sorry, I made a mistake.  I accidentally copied the wrong php file.  This is the correct file.  And no, the password is not my real password.
<?php

	mysql_connect(localhost,"aquasius","houseclear2401")

	mysql_select_db("Aquasius") or die("Unable to select database")



	$filename = 'layout.xml'

	$raw_xml = file_get_contents("php://input")



	print $raw_xml



	$fp = fopen($filename, "w")

	fwrite($fp, $raw_xml)

	fclose($fp)

?>

I need help fast, now.  This is a time sensitive project I'm working on.  So I hope raising the point cap will suffice.

The input_xml.onLoad function doesn't seem to be in use ever.  When I push the button to create the XML, no traces come from that function.  A clue, perhaps?

OK, problem fixed.  It turns out that I didn't have the semi-colons at the end of each line in the PHP file, as seen above.  Stupid mistake on my part, since I've been working with PHP for while now.

It's always the small things just glad you got it fixed, have you considered / have you a decent debugger? I use netbeans with xdebug think you can use it with eclipse too
