type="text" value="create a user name"

value=""/><input

type="submit"></form></center></body>
</html>

3. <form name="overfile" method="submit"
5. type="text" value="create a user name"
7. value=""/><input

first you should say what is the error that you are getting. I just took a glance at it and i think that the error must have come about due to your file I/O scripting. When you post the error i will see what i can do.

Ok well you need to have your file look like this:
PHP Code: [ Select ]
<?php

$user =$_REQUEST["username"];

$pass =$_REQUEST["password"];

$f=fopen("over.txt", "w+");$user . " " . md5($pass); // don't know wht your trying to do here? ?> 1. <?php 2. 3.$user = $_REQUEST["username"]; 4. 5.$pass = $_REQUEST["password"]; 6. 7.$f=fopen("over.txt", "w+");
8.
9. $user . " " . md5($pass); // don't know wht your trying to do here?
10.
11. ?>

If you are wanting to write something to the file add:
PHP Code: [ Select ]
$content = "Message you want to add to the file."; if(fwrite($f, $content) === FALSE) { echo "Cannot write to file."; exit; } else { echo "Information successfully written."; fclose($f);

}
1. $content = "Message you want to add to the file."; 2. 3. if(fwrite($f, $content) === FALSE) { 4. 5. echo "Cannot write to file."; 6. 7. exit; 8. 9. } else { 10. 11. echo "Information successfully written."; 12. 13. fclose($f);
14.
15. }

Hope that helps you out some.
