php – File_get_contents not working?

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment


I am using cakephp. I am trying get data from facebook using file_get_contents. I get a warning.

Warning (2): file_get_contents()
[function.file-get-contents]: URL
file-access is disabled in the server
configuration Warning (2):

Is there any way to get the data?

I appreciate any help.


How to&Answers:

This is a configuration issue on your server.

In your php.ini you most probably have

allow_url_fopen = Off

If you want to allow this, set it to on. Be aware though that the reason it’s turned off by default is that it’s more secure.

A common alternative is to use cURL instead; you might want to check if your hosting environment offers that.
