    Question Basic Php Proxy

    Ladies & Gentlemen,
    My Fellow Buddy programmers and would be buddy programmers!

    Watching the following youtube tutorial I built a basic php proxy but for some reason it is not working.
    Can you guess why ?
    The clip uses the deprecated ereg_replace and so I replaced it with preg but no luck.

    I get a long list of these 2 same errors over and over again.

    Warning: preg_replace(): No ending matching delimiter '>' found in C:\xampp\htdocs\e_id\proxy.php on line 9

    Warning: preg_replace(): Delimiter must not be alphanumeric or backslash in C:\xampp\htdocs\e_id\proxy.php on line 10

    And sometimes I get another error instead and all without changing the code:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'action' (T_STRING), expecting ',' or ')' in C:\xampp\htdocs\e_id\proxy.php on line 10

    PHP Code:


    $page file($url);

    $page as $part)
    $part preg_replace('<img src=','<img src='.$url,$part);
    $part preg_replace('action="','action="'.$url,$part);

    preg_replace needs the first parameter to be a Regular Expression, not a standard string. For what you're doing you should be using str_replace instead of preg_replace.
