Once in a while you’ll see the error message “URL file access is disabled in server configuration” when opening an external URL using PHP. In general, this means that the HP setting
is set to false. Today I ran into this problem but
So either set in php.ini
allow_url_fopen = On allow_url_include = On
or use this in your PHP code:
<?php ini_set('allow_url_fopen', 'on'); ini_set('allow_url_include', 'on'); ... ?>
I should probably add that both settings default to ‘Off’ for a reason. Both are the major entry gates for malicious code when used without proper care.
