XAMPP - PHP Configuration

Postby Gamzarme » 31. December 2006 20:48

How do I configure the PHP options that I find when I call a file with "phpinfo()" inside it?

I'm wondering this because I have just uploaded my website onto my new server and it has some problems with the PHP code:

Code: Select all
Warning: include() [function.include]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /opt/lampp/htdocs/php/sidebar.php on line 41

Warning: include(http://192.168.1.100/php/sites.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /opt/lampp/htdocs/php/sidebar.php on line 41


I'm guessing that the second error is caused by the first due to a setting being wrong (as is displaying in the output).

Any chance of this being resolved?

Maybe allow_url_include (or allow_url_fopen) is set to "off".

BTW:
Normaly it make no sense to use a URL in the include statement.

How does one set that configuration? I am quite new at the PHP config. business.

Also, what is normally in an include statement? Can you give me an example of how you would use it?

In the file "php.ini".

A normal filesystem path.

Can you give me an example of how you would use it?

Thanks, Wiedmann.

I had to add an entry in the php.ini file that was "allow_url_include" and set it to "On" as it didn't have that entry (though PHP 5.20 is supposed to, eh?).

But now it works, reading up a bit more on it on the Internet seems to reveal that the including and requiring functions are quite prone to attacks from hackers. That's a bit disturbing. Think it matters much or has PHP improved in security since those warnings were issued?
