But its working well when i use $data = file_get_contents('http://');
is this because of urlhttp:// what shall i do to
get this function work.
thankx & regards

I tested the same script on PHP5.2 running on XP/SP3, and it works just
It has probably to do with port 8000 somehow.

A few questions:
1) If you paste the url into a browserwindow, can you reach the site?
(On the same machine where PHP runs of course)
2) What OS are you using and which PHP version?

I am using PHP Version 5.2.8 but on a godaddy free hosting account .

If it's a free hosting account, it's likely that allow_url_fopen is set to off. Run phpinfo() and check its value.

This is the url on my server

where i am running this script.


$data = '';

$new_string = '';

$test = '';

// Getting all the data from the report generated and getting
statistics from report //

$data = file_get_contents('');

echo $data;
