file-access is disabled in the server con - Error
« on: August 22, 2008, 11:40:19 am »
Wondering if anyone can help with this.

Added some new items to one of our categories.  When we go to view it online we get the following errors


Warning: fopen() [function.fopen]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /usr/local/home/httpd/vhtdocs/seemescotland.org.uk/newsite/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/connectionTools.class.php on line 174

Warning: fopen(http://www.ecb.int:80/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /usr/local/home/httpd/vhtdocs/seemescotland.org.uk/newsite/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/connectionTools.class.php on line 174

Error: Possible server error! - ()


Error: Failed to retrieve the Currency Converter XML document.



There seems to be a problem with server permissions.  Anyone got any idea how to solve this?

Regards,
Craig

i cant belive that they are using url fopen... :o

i guess 90% of all webserver i know dont have url fopen enabled...anyway,

ecb is the europen central bank.. they getting the actual currencie stats..

ist ok so far... but not with url fopen... i wont open it for any of my webserver...

so the question here for me is... how can i disable it.. have to take a look.
