They state, in their knowledgebase, the following:
Most scripts realize this is a security risk and therefor no longer use this setting in php.Â Please contract your software author if they ask for this setting, we will only enable this on dedicated servers to protect our network
Ummmm....are they using the same fopen I'm thinking of, the one that simply open files? Or are they referring to using fopen to open URLs?
Simply forbidding fopen seems like the world of php scripts would fall apart, since it is basic to any kind of file handling ...
Thoughts? Ideas? Comments?
