I need a way of taking a variable from a plugin’s settings and write it to a small key file located in the plugin’s directory. The entire contents of the key file is this:
<?php $transaction_key = "npo7d3A0d2hhTYF5w9uo"; ?>
I’ve tried to use
file_put_contents, but I can’t get it to work. Anyone know how to correctly do this?
It is impossible especially if you also need to keep the key in secret. Just use the DB.
Yes it works. You are just not passing the right file path.
$base = dirname(__FILE__); // That's the directory path $filename = 'key.php'; $fileUrl = $base . '/' . $filename; $data = '<?php $transaction_key="'. get_option('option_name') . '"?>'; file_put_contents($fileUrl, $data);
