The code I've been using on Apache is:
$rsspage = 'http://www.foo.com/rss/1.xml'
$rss = all my xml content

if (!file_exists("$rsspage"))
return false;

$fp = @fopen("$rsspage", "w+");

if (!$fp) return false;

fwrite($fp, $rss);

return true;

If I remove the 'if file exists' stuff then I'm no better off - nothing seems

Thanks very much - dunstan
