Send an XML object or file to a PHP script

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

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.
