You don't write a file through Apache. You write a file on the
computer's hard drive.
/ is the root of the hard drive in this case -- not the web server files

I think it will work when you are telling the file system where to
save your file. :)
on a windows machine I'm not sure, but it would probably look
something like c:/path/to/web/zap/news
on linux it's usually
on mac it's usually
it's called your "absolute path" to the web directory on the server.
Anything it has to do with http://domain.com/ is because Apache was
told to map the URL domain.com to the system directory /path/to/the/
web/directory on the server. You're saving a file directly on the
system. You're going around Apache.
if you try fopen("test.txt","wb"); it should end up in the same file
as the script that's running.
