Use php form to update xml file

57
Hi,
I'm sorta new to xml and php and was wondering if there's a simple way to build a php form that could edit (add/delete/change) elements in an xml file. Specifically for a band, so they could update their own tour schedule.

I would be building the tour page, with some javascript to load the xml file and display the tour dates, but I want to set something up so they could make the changes.

Any recommendations for tutorials or such?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, this should probably go in the php forum.

I do not know that it would be that simple, but it could be done. To get specifics you would need to post your question in a forum for PHP topics.

There are a couple modules in PHP that could fulfill your needs
http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.domxml.php

You could also use XSLT, (in PHP?) but that might be overkill.

I'm not sure why you don't use javascript's DOM, plus an ActiveX component to save the xml.

It depends on what xml module you're using in php.
