Ok…here is my problem, I’m writing an application using Flash and PHP in which I have a PHP script that updates an XML file on the server by opening it in write(+w) and writing the information passed by Flash whenever the visitor submits info.

Now I’m just starting off with PHP and have a doubt. What if two or more visitors submit their requests at the same time??? Will the file be updated or corrupted. I’m asking this to you guys because I have no way to test it out(atleast I don’t know one… :(). So if you know any issues that may rise with this process, please let me know what I can do about them.

Thanx in advance… :)
