How do I fix this PHP script to upload a zip file to the server?  I am getting an error on the "write".  

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'w' (T_STRING)

<?php



$rebateurl = "http://www.website.com/archive/rebateImages.zip";



// save that image to our server!
$ch = curl_init();
$timeout = 0;
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $rebateurl);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);
// Getting binary data
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_BINARYTRANSFER, 1);
$image = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
$new_filename = "rebateImages.zip";


$f = fopen('$new_filename, 'w');   //ERROR HERE
fwrite($f, $image);
fclose($f);


?>

Open in new window



Thanks for your help!

You had an extra single quote.
$f = fopen($new_filename, 'w');   //ERROR HERE
