Open/Load/View HTML file in TEXTAREA and update using PHP

What we are doing here is ‘edit an HTML on the user side’.

For example,

I have a file called manual.html. I have uploaded that file on CPANEL and only I have the accessing the CPANEL.


If someone wants to make changes in the manual, what would he/she do?They would need to ask me every time to make changes or will give me the new/changed file and tell me to upload it on the server.

There is an easy way out…

Let’s just give them an option of editing the HTML file on the server and click on SAVE/UPDATE button and save the file directly to the server.

Sounds cool right?

All you need to do is create 2 files:

  1. edit_manual.php
  2. editcontents.php

For editing the HTML file we will use html CKEDITOR.

1. Create a file called edit_manual.php
Put the following code inside it.[Copy the following code and paste it in your file ]


<script src="//"></script>
<form action="editcontents.php" method="POST">
<table align="center" >
<td><textarea name="text_id" id="t_id"  rows=7 cols=17 value="<?php echo "MANUAL.html" ?>">
include "MANUAL.html";
// Replace the <textarea id="t_id"> with a CKEditor
// instance, using default configuration.

CKEDITOR.replace( 't_id' );
CKEDITOR.config.autoParagraph = false;
CKEDITOR.config.fillEmptyBlocks = false;
CKEDITOR.config.allowedContent = true;
CKEDITOR.config.forcePasteAsPlainText = true;
<td><input type="submit" value="Update" name="edit" /></td>


2. Create file editcontents.php
Put the following code inside it.[Copy the following code and paste it in your file ]
$handle = fopen("MANUAL.html", "w") or die("Unable to open file!");
$text  = $_POST['text_id'];
if(fwrite($handle, $text) == FALSE){
  echo '<span class="redtxt">There was an error</span>';
   echo '<span class="redtxt">File edited successfully</span>';
echo '<a href="path/to/MANUAL.html" target="new">CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE FILE</a>';
<button onclick="goBack()">Go Back</button>
function goBack() {
Below given is the image of how the output should look like:[html file opened in text area]
