I need the results of a mysql query to be piped unto a text file so i can print it. Problen is: Where is
the text file ?! Here is the php code to run the query:
// Connect to database server
echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_error();
$sql1 = "SELECT startDate,endDate,intervalTime FROM june2013
INTO OUTFILE 'xxx.txt'";
echo "Data added to text file successfully";
echo "Error transfering data " . mysqli_error($con);
After I had ran the above code I recieved the message:
Data added to text file successfully
Which means the code succeeded in creating the desired text file.
I searched the file in my HD at: xampp/htdocs and couldn't find it ! Then I made a WINDOWS 7 search for
"xxx.txt" and the search found nothing !
So I ran again the code and recieved an error message that says:
Error transfering data File 'xxx.txt' already exists
If that file exixts, where could it exist if not on my hard disk? If it is on my hard disk why can't I find it?
Could it be some kind of a "hidden file"?
Can anyone help me with that?
