allow_url_fopen

Bon dia Sitepointers!,

My host does not allow direct access to the php.ini file instead we have to change the server configuration through the .htaccess file.

I tried the following:

php_value allow_url_fopen 1

Host has to specifically change this…sorry

Is my code right?

The manual says that for security reasons that can only be set in php.ini
http://www.php.net/manual/en/filesystem.configuration.php#ini.allow-url-fopen

However, it appears to depend on the version.

PHP_INI_ALL in PHP <= 4.3.4. PHP_INI_SYSTEM in PHP < 6. Available since PHP 4.0.4

http://php.net/manual/en/configuration.changes.modes.php
This seems to indicate that starting with PHP 4.3.4 you can only alter that option in the main php.ini file. Prior to that you can alter it anywhere.
