fopen() with the mode set to 'w+' should create the file if it doesn't
exist, so if it's throwing errors right off the bat, that's probably an
issue right there. On the other hand, the '13' you're getting back from
fputs() refers to the number of bytes written, which is correct (13 chars
in <html></html>). If you have created the file to begin with, ar you sure
that the file's permissions are set to 666 at minimum?

What OS are you running?
