write data to .txt file with PHP

This will open a plain text file (text_file_name.txt) and save information to it.

<?php
$your_data = "This is the data to be stored in the text file.";

// Open the file and erase the contents if any
$fp = fopen("text_file_name.txt", "w");

// Write the data to the file
fwrite($fp, $your_data);

// Close the file
fclose($fp); 
?>
