Hi,
I understand why I'm getting Resource id #9 as a value (its the allocated memory space I think for the value).. or something like that.

Problem is I can't see why I get that. Here is the pertinent code:

$myurl= $RecordingUrl.".mp3";
   $infile = fopen ($myurl, "r");
   $outfile = fopen ("../../../modules/account/recordings/".$account_id."/test2.mp3","w");
   while (!feof ($infile))
   {
    fwrite($outfile,fread ($infile, 1024));
   }

   fclose($outfile);
   fclose ($infile);





	$email = $stationemail;
	$subject = "Winning Caller Details for ".$campaignname." from ".$stationname;
	$body = "Contest Details for ".$campaignname.":\n\n";
	$body .= "Contest ended: ".date("F j, Y, g:i a")."\n";
	$body .= "Caller phoned in using: ".$CallTo." contest line.\n";
	$body .= "Winning Caller was put through to: ".$djphone.".\n";
	$body .= "Caller's Name: ".$CallerName."\n";
	$body .= "Caller's Phone Number: ".$FromCaller."\n";
	$body .= "Caller's City: ".$CallerCity."\n";
	$body .= "Caller's Province/State: ".$CallerState."\n";
	$body .= "Recording Duration: ".$CallDuration." minutes long.\n\n";
	$body .= "Here is the link to the recording:\n";
	$body .= $outfile;

The script is saving an mp3 from a remote location into a local directory on the server (that works fine, there is a file there)
Next I'm emailing the url to the newly created mp3 on my server. For a value (last line of the code), I keep getting 'Resouce id #9)

How do I get the url to the mp3 file instead of the resource number?

Thanks tj

you will need something similar to the code below.  The 'Resource id #9' is because of $outfile = fopen();

fopen does NOT return the name of the file - it returns a resource id.
$myurl= $RecordingUrl.".mp3";
$outurl="../../../modules/account/recordings/".$account_id."/test2.mp3";
   $infile = fopen ($myurl, "r");
   $outfile = fopen ($outurl,"w");
   while (!feof ($infile))
   {
    fwrite($outfile,fread ($infile, 1024));
   }

   fclose($outfile);
   fclose ($infile);





	$email = $stationemail;
	$subject = "Winning Caller Details for ".$campaignname." from ".$stationname;
	$body = "Contest Details for ".$campaignname.":\n\n";
	$body .= "Contest ended: ".date("F j, Y, g:i a")."\n";
	$body .= "Caller phoned in using: ".$CallTo." contest line.\n";
	$body .= "Winning Caller was put through to: ".$djphone.".\n";
	$body .= "Caller's Name: ".$CallerName."\n";
	$body .= "Caller's Phone Number: ".$FromCaller."\n";
	$body .= "Caller's City: ".$CallerCity."\n";
	$body .= "Caller's Province/State: ".$CallerState."\n";
	$body .= "Recording Duration: ".$CallDuration." minutes long.\n\n";
	$body .= "Here is the link to the recording:\n";
	$body .= $outurl;
