Hi Mark,

someone might correct me, but i am pretty sure it is not possible to put something into an  http url.

And open file only works with files in a local file system.

So if you want to write into a file on the web you can either use ftp.

example:
 put "Hello from LiveCode" into URL "ftp://yourftpserver.com/yourpath"

or with ftp username and password
 put "Hello from LiveCode" into URL "ftp://ftpusername:ftppassword@yourftpserver.com/yourpath"

But, as already mentioned by others in an other discussion, ftp is not secure.

Other possibility is to post data into an url. This data then is processed by a script, which writes the data to the file.

Regards,

Matthias
