lets say i have a few sites on various urls, hosts, on various platforms, php setups etc.

what would be the easiest way to have a list of values in a central location on one host that i could import into an array in php from all locations..

so every site could import the data..

ive tried php includes but it doesnt work because some hosts have php setup to stop it.

i thought about using xml but i dont know how to output or import it

any suggestions?
