I've never heard of Alchemy at all but it's possible that your hosting company doesn't support file_get_contents(). Try using cURL instead.

Better yet, can you tell us what the error message is??


Oh, and incidentally, here's how you would use cURL instead of file_get_contents():

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://www.website.com/example.html');
$htmlFile = curl_exec($ch);

Like I said, there's not much help that I can offer without knowing what the error message is. It's possible that you are specifying the wrong path for the api_key text file or the wrong path for the example data. It's possible that your server doesn't support file_get_contents(). It's possible that you're not including the AlchemyAPI class within the php file that is declaring the alchemy object. Lots of things could be the issue here.
