Create CSV file using PHP and save into directory

CSV (Comma Separated Values) file is one of the ways to store database values in tabular format. But as a PHP beginner sometimes create CSV and save it into a directory become a nightmare.

But don’t worry in this tutorial I am going to show you how to do that.

What we are going to do:

I will use a blog example in which I will fetch all blog post with their content and display them in a html table. Then I will create a button on the top left of the table with the title of Create and Save CSV. When user will click on button then csv will be created and saved in csv directory. In this process I will use fopen() function to create a CSV file and fputcsv() function to put data into created file.
