Write to config file - Aleksa95x - 01-04-2018


I'm making installation file, how can I write to e.g. database config file with fwrite()?
I want to change value of hostname, username, password, database name. How can I select these particular array elements?

You can create CodeIgniter config.tpl files with dummy values and use
str_replace to replace the dummy values with the inputted values.

1) open and read the ./application/config.tpl config file
2) use str_replace to add the correct values
3) save and write the config.php file to the ./application/config folder

This can be used to write any type of CodeIgniter configuration file.

I'll see if I can give you an example later today.
