PHP 7 fputcsv() Function not creating file

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to understand fputcsv, but I can not

I've pasted the code here: https://www.w3schools.com/php7/func_filesystem_fputcsv.asp

into a file an uploaded it here: https://askerspeiderne.no/lastned.php

But nothing happens when I reload the page. I thought it would create and download a CSV.

What is wrong? The code, the browser, the server?

$list = array (
  array("Peter", "Griffin" ,"Oslo", "Norway"),
  array("Glenn", "Quagmire", "Oslo", "Norway")

$file = fopen("contacts.csv","w");

foreach ($list as $line) {
  fputcsv($file, $line);


Please help me!

It doesn't send the file to the browser, it just saves it in the same directory as that  PHP file.
