Warning: file_get_contents(<a valid URL>): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/html/index.php on line 13
What have i forgotten to do in my configuration of this new server to cause such an error?
allow_url_fopen is set to On.
Firewall has been disabled.
I would assume file_get_contents may require the temp folder, does PHP have adequate permissions to the defined temp folder?
Also found this on php.net
On Centos 5, and maybe other Red Hat based systems, any attempt to use file_get_contents to access a URL on an http port other than 80 (e.g. “http://www.example.com:8040/page”) may fail with a permissions violation (error 13) unless the box you are running php on has its seLinux set to ‘permissive’ not ‘enforcing’ . Otherwise the request doesn’t even get out of the box, i.e. the permissions violation is generated locally by seLinux
the SELinux setting was the one i missed. thanks cp
