I have a remote script on a local network and I need to make Web App in
PHP, call this remote script on a different machine. How do I do this?
This way, for example:
$viart_xml = fsockopen("www.server.com", 80, $errno, $errstr, 12);
fputs($viart_xml, "GET /aScript.xml HTTP/1.0\r\n");
fputs($viart_xml, "Host: www. server.com\r\n");
fputs($viart_xml, "Referer: http://www. server.com\r\n");
fputs($viart_xml, "User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0;
Windows NT 5.1)\r\n\r\n");
This may work too, but not using PHP 4.4.2
$viart_xml = fopen("http://www.viart.com/viart_shop.xml", "r");
Much easier is using fopen("http://www.example.com/somescript.php") if the
http-wrapper is enabled.
If PHP has decided that filename specifies a registered protocol, and that
protocol is registered as a network URL, PHP will check to make sure that
allow_url_fopen is enabled. If it is switched off, PHP will emit a warning
and the fopen call will fail.
If you need to send information in a POST too, have a look at CURL.
