Default can't read file


i am using php4 on a windows 2000 platform running IIS 5.

on page 328 of the book i tried to do the counter example, but it does not work. i can not open the file.

has it something to do with teh slashes or because windows use different slashes than UNIX?


here is the code

<?php

//hit_counter1.php

$counter_file="./count.dat";

if (!($fp = fopen($counter_file, "r"))) die ("Cannot open $counter_file");
$counter = (int) fread($fp, 20);
fclose($fp);

$counter++;

echo"You are the visitor no $counter.";

$fp = fopen($counter_file, "w");
fwrite($fp, $counter);
fclose($fp);

?>


thanks a lot in advance

nikos

You have to ensure that IUSR_[your_machine_name] account has "read" and "write" permission on this file.
