Security Exception while accessing XML file data

149 100+

I have hosted a website on GoDaddy.com. It's a share hosting. I am using XML file as a database. That means, I am reading and writing data into XML file instead of regular RDBMS (MySQL, MS SQL). I am reading XML data into DataSet and manipulate it and save the changes again to XML file.

It works fine on my local machine.. but not working on GoDaddy server.. I am getting security exception..

Actually this security concerns raised because it's a share hosting. Otherwise Data manipulation through XML should work fine.
Sometimes, due to the incapability of Hosting Company many errors could come. In my experience I faced some hosting company who can not run PHP properly...:)
So it's wise, always, to choose good hosting company.

This is because you do not have write access to the folder that contains you xml file. you need to contact godaddy and ask them to give you permission on one of the folders to write files. This should fix you problem. Make sure u have the xml file inside the folder that has the write permission set.
