I am getting several emails requesting help because they are running into PHP errors when they try to use the PHP script. Make sure permissions are set on the folder that holds itunes.php, otherwise itunes.php can't work.

i notice people are trying to upload their library.xml files. you don't have to do this! all you need to do is enter a username and password in the itunes.php file, upload the it to a server, then run the application. in the application, enter the url to the itunes.php file you uploaded, and enter the username and password you chose, and click update. no uploading of a library.xml file or any use of mysql is required. i was trying to keep this simple, dont make it complicated! this was all explained in the read me file. the download link works fine, but if you are having problems, go to http://macware.byethost5.com/phptunes and click the download link there.

There is an error in the Read Me file. The code for including the itunes.php file in another web page should be the following:

Note the semi-colon. Sorry about that.

Hahahahah, 15,000 songs? I think it's time to get out of your mother's basement, son.

This works absolutely perfectly with smaller playlists, but pointing it at my Library.xml file resulted in the following error:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /Library/WebServer/Documents/itunes/phptunest.php on line 731

Presumably because my Library is fairly big (approx. 4,000 songs) and the exported .xml file is 4.6MB - I haven't tried it in MySQL mode yet - would that help?

it probably wont, but i cant be sure. i have 8,000 and got the same error, so i transfered everything to a mysql db but i got the same error...i guess its just too big. I wish I had a mac, they have plugins that will load a 10,000 song list in like literally like 5 seconds.

If you're suffering from time-out issues either try running the script from the commandline or add the following line just after the opening
