How To Turn On Allow_url_fopen

Dec 6, 2009

I need to turn this on in order to install a app to my site, but i cant get it to work. I tried googling it and it always says "Set it to on in the php.ini", however I cannot find this file anywhere. I am using GoDaddy with the Windows server, if that matters. Does anybody know how I can turn allow_url_fopen on or find PHP.ini?

ISP Turned Allow_url_fopen Off

Oct 11, 2006

I have a recent server issue that I need some guidance on. Someone
hacked into one of my domains through a flaw in an older version of a
script called Reviewpost Pro. Knocked the server offline for about 1/2 a
day. An updated version has since been installed.

As a result of the hacking, my ISP has turned off allow_url_fopen in the
PHP ini. This has broken the displaying of thumbnails in the updated
program although everything else seems to be working properly.

Does anyone know if there is a workaround like cURL or something that
can be used in place of allow_url_fopen? I don't enough about cURL or
any other method myself. I asked at the RP forum but all they do is pass
the buck and say that it isn't their fault that the script isn't working.

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions on a way around this?

Allow_url_fopen ON But Not Working

Jun 15, 2005

I have a small script that does a simple fopen(), grabbing the name for the file to be downloaded from a second script. I can use fopen() to successfully open that script but as soon as I feed any parameters to the url to fopen, it balks. It even fails if I just add a '?' to the url. So, this is found: Code:

CURL Vers Allow_url_fopen

May 9, 2006

I have a script that uses allow_url_fopen and I am hosting on Dreamhost which has that disabled, and they suggest you can use cURL to get the same results.

How hard is it to convert a script that is using allow_url_fopen to use cURL?

Since I am new, I don't know if it's possible but very hard, and not worth it, or if it's just a matter of a few lines? If it's fairly easy and someone is willing to help me understand what I need to do, I can post the code for the script for you to review.

External Files Without Allow_url_fopen?

Jun 27, 2011

Is it possible to open a file from an external website where allow_url_fopen is not set to true?I am writing a script that downloads XML and another plain text file format and (and this is where the problem lies as I know I can use PHP to use XML without fopen) do stuff with the file before putting it out (some of the returned XML is invalid with some characters not corresponding with the encoding type - this is a problem that I've raised with the developers of the XML feed I'm accessing, but they seem reluctant to do anything about it...)While when I've tested it, I can download the files fine, I do have allow_url_fopen set to true in my php.ini file. However, I expect that one group of the people who I'm coding this for (I'm doing this project for two different groups of people) don't, and probablywon't want to change it. Is it possible to download the text files from the external server and feed them into a file on my own server

Parsing RSS Feeds Where Allow_url_fopen=OFF

My host turns allow_url_fopen to off for security reasons I used to parse RSS feeds just using

Which I can't do now. I have a replacement method using CURL from my host but it literally takes five minutes to load the page if it even works: Code:

CURL Vs Allow_url_fopen - Which Is Safer For Getting Images

Jul 5, 2011

I have a script that users can input a image URL (from another website) and then crop it using JS and have it saved on my server. My question is... when getting the image from another server is it safer to use CURL or allow_url_fopen (via file_get_contents())? Or is there a preferred/safer method available?

Security is a big concern for me as I know this is a very dangerous procedure - The script will only need to work for image files if that makes a difference.

Does Fopen On URLs Work In 4.4.2 On Windows? I Have Allow_url_fopen On

Scrape Websites When CURL And Allow_url_fopen Is Disabled?

Oct 7, 2010

I know the question regarding PHP web page scrapers has been asked time and time and using this, I discovered SimpleHTMLDOM. After working seamlessly on my local server, I uploaded everything to my online server only to find out something wasn't working right. A quick look at the FAQ lead me to this. I'm currently using a free hosting service so edit any php.ini settings. So using the FAQ's suggestion, I tried using cURL, only to find out that this too is turned off by my hosting service. Are there any other simple solutions to scrape contents of a of another web page without the use or cURL or SimpleHTMLDOM?

Curl Alternative To Require A File Instead Of Allow_url_fopen?

Mar 18, 2011

I have a php script that I'm trying to pull some data from a database on one site and display it on another site. I need to reference some files, but using require filename.php throws errors due to my allow_url_fopen being set to off for security reasons. Is there an alternative way to "require" the file using cURL instead?Example OLD:

<?php require (''); ?>

I tried this, but it doesn't work:

Turn Zero Into 00

Apr 4, 2006

A funny little problem i've had a few times, i've always gone for a work-around but i'm sure there is a simple morsel to solve the issue

I am using select boxes for people to choose the time from.

These are coming out from a simple loop, starting at 0 and finishing at 24:

$text.='<option value="'.$count.'">'.$count.'</option>'
what i would like to do is display $count as 00 instead of just 0 at 12am and 01 instead of 1 at 1am and so on.

I'm sure there is a quick fix, i've just never found it...

Turn On Register_globals?

Jul 24, 2002

for a stats program for a game, logs are sent to a perl file which saves data into a MySQL database then interpreted by PHP. when i try to check the stats it gives the error register_globals must be ENABLED

i went into php.ini and checked for a register_globals variable and i found this:
register_globals = Off
so of course i change it to:
register_globals = On
that didnt work so i also tried:
register_globals = ON
register_globals = on

it keeps saying that register_globals is still disabled though.... what is wrong? php.ini is in the windows folder where it should be.

Turn Register_globals Off?

Oct 10, 2005

I just took over the website at work. I am still learning PHP.
Register_globals are on and the script appears to be coded to take
advantage of this. I know how to recode the script, but am unsure how
to turn them off when I am done. I have googled and came up with

php_flag register_globals off

in the .htaccess file.

I did this without recoding the script and the script still worked, so
I am assuming I did not turn them off.
