Creating a PHP file by using PHP, the concept is the same as creating a text file except you have to enclose the code you want to be in your created page.
An example for creating a PHP info page:
$contents = "<?php phpinfo();"; $fp = fopen('info.php', 'w'); fwrite($fp, $contents); fclose($fp);
This will create info.php containing:
That shows the PHP information.
$content = '<?php echo $_GET['name'];';
Will display the parameter for name, eg ?name=gary will print gary on the page. Note how the code is stated without being active; it isn’t done like:
$content = "<?php echo $_GET['name'];";
