fopen in php doesn't work

Hello! When I try a simple fopen(“hello.txt”, “w”) it doesn’t do anything at all. I changed to full permissions 777 and changed around the owner to root and different ones and nothing. I added var_dump and echoed the fopen and it gives me False(bool). I checked the fopen configuration in the php.ini file and it is enabled. Any help??

What are you trying to do?

The “w” in fopen(“hello.txt”,“w”) means to write to a file, not read. It would be best to read the PHP documentation on fopen().

Lots of examples! Hope that helps, let me know if I can help more.
