I'm currently working on a project where I need to retrieve the contents of a file using PHP. After some research, I came across the file_get_contents() function in PHP, but I'm not entirely sure how to use it correctly.
To provide some context, I'm building a website where I want to display the contents of a text file on a webpage. This text file is located on the server, and I want to fetch its content dynamically using PHP.
I've read the PHP manual and have a basic understanding of the function's syntax, but I'm unsure about some of the intricacies. Specifically, I'd like to know if there are any limitations or potential issues when dealing with large files. Additionally, what happens if the file path is not valid or the file itself is not readable?
It would be really helpful if someone could provide me with a clear example of how to correctly use the file_get_contents() function. Moreover, any insights or best practices related to using this function would be highly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your guidance and expertise!
Best, [Your Name]
