Question by user918712
My problem is that I can’t include a file on a remote server.
<?php echo "Includingn"; require_once("http://xx.xxx.xxx.xx:8080/path/to/myfile.inc"); echo "Done..n"; ?>
The script fails at the require_once function.
I’m running the script with: php -d allow_url_include=On script.php
but to make sure I have set allow_url_include and allow_url_fopen to On in php.ini
If I copy http://xx.xxx.xxx.xx:8080/path/to/myfile.inc to the browser I’m served the file.
I have also tried to include other remote files (on standard port 80), but still no luck
Where I get really confused is that everything works from my local computers at my office (mac, ubuntu), but not from our servers. I have tested it on 2 different servers, a virtual and a dedicated.
I can get the file with fopen().

This can be done by setting
on on php.ini.
But, as mentioned in comments, this opens a
security hole on your application.
