Create a new PHP file and upload to the server where you are running the script above.


        echo (ini_get('allow_url_fopen')? 'It is On' : 'It is off');

Direct your browser to this file. It should print "It is On" or "It is off".

It is On ? your PHP.ini file is good. You need to focus on troubleshooting your script.

It is Off ? Set allow_url_fopen directives to on . This can be done by editing the php.ini file.

If your Server API is apache module, you can set it to on by adding this on your .htaccess file in the root directory.

    php_value allow_url_fopen On

If it is a fast CGI or any derivatives of CGI, you can pretty much create a new file called php.ini file and upload it to the directory where your script is running.

    allow_url_fopen = On;

Sometimes allow_url_fopen directives creates a security issues, when set to on. I strongly suggests to use cURL instead.

ok yes iamthwee i see now there a DNS issue i will fix this and get back to you give me few mins

i dont have php installed on my solaris server I will install it and see what happens
