import xml file in php

In this tutorial, we will create a Simple Import XML File using PHP. This code can import the XML file to a data table when the user uploads the XML file. The code uses simplexml_load_file to load a block of data from the uploaded XML file to view it as a readable table format. This is a user-friendly kind of program feel free to modify it.

We will be using XML as a markup language that utilizes in PHP as HTML data. It is designed to store and transport data that can be manipulated within the local server.

Getting Started:

First, you have to download & install XAMPP or any local server that runs PHP scripts. Here’s the link for the XAMPP server https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html.

And, this is the link for the bootstrap that I used for the layout design https://getbootstrap.com/.

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple form for our application. To create a copy of the form and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.php.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css"/>
    </head>
<body>
    <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
        <div class="container-fluid">
            <a class="navbar-brand" href = "https://sourcecodester.com">Sourcecodester</a>
        </div>
    </nav>
    <div class="col-md-3"></div>
    <div class="col-md-6 well">
        <h3 class="text-primary">PHP - Simple Import XML File</h3>
        <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #000;" />
        <div class="col-md-4">
            <form method="POST" action="" enctype="multipart/form-data">
                <h5>Upload XML here</h5>
                <input type="file" name="file"/>
                <br />
                <center><button name="import" class="btn btn-primary">Import</button></center>
            </form>
        </div>
        <div class="col-md-8">
            <?php include'import.php'?>
        </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Creating the Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will upload and display a xml data when the button is clicked. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as import.php.

<?php
    if(ISSET($_POST['import'])){
        $file_name=$_FILES['file']['name'];
        $exp=explode('.', $file_name);
        $name=end($exp);
 
        if($name=="xml"){
?>
    <table class="table table-bordered" >	
        <thead class="alert-info">
            <tr>
                <th>Firstname</th>
                <th>Lastname</th>
                <th>Address</th>
            </tr>
        </thead>
 
        <tbody>
 
            <?php
                $xml = simplexml_load_file(''.$file_name);
                foreach($xml->member as $member){
                    echo '
                        <tr>
                            <td>'.$member->firstname.'</td>
                            <td>'.$member->lastname.'</td>
                            <td>'.$member->address.'</td>
                        </tr>
                    ';
                }
            ?>
        </tbody>
    </table>
<?php
        }else{
            echo"<script>alert('Please upload xml file only')</script>";
        }
    }else{
?>
    <table class="table table-bordered" >	
        <thead class="alert-info">
            <tr>
                <th>Firstname</th>
                <th>Lastname</th>
                <th>Address</th>
            </tr>
        </thead>
 
        <tbody>
            <td></td>
            <td></td>
            <td></td>
        </tbody>
    </table>
<?php
    }
?>
