View Full Version : rss pausable scroller fopen ?

03-23-2007, 01:18 AM
i had already posted this but it was within another thread, since im having more issues and problem wasnt resolved...i split it (sorry for putting it in the thread in the first place)

i am having a problem with this script on my site as well...

1) Script Url on DD = http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/rsspausescroller/index.htm

2) my site that script is on = http://www.nintendosyndicate.jaywebdesigns.com

(only one that first page)

3) problem:

it doesnt seem to be able to get to lastrss.php but i could be wrong. the boxes display this error message in them

Error fetching remote RSS feed!

Warning: main(lastRSS.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/ebbinger41/domains/nintendodsyndicate.jaywebdesigns.com/public_html/lastrss/bridge.php on line 14

Warning: main() [function.include]: Failed opening 'lastRSS.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/ebbinger41/domains/nintendodsyndicate.jaywebdesigns.com/public_html/lastrss/bridge.php on line 14

Fatal error: Cannot instantiate non-existent class: lastrss in /home/ebbinger41/domains/nintendodsyndicate.jaywebdesigns.com/public_html/lastrss/bridge.php on line 17

right now everything is set up as it was when i downloaded the script (but i added 2 new rss urls) all the links to the files i believe are correct

i have been at it for a few hours and have made little progress (before it wasnt showing up at all, now after figuring out i forgot a comma and a folder needed to be uncap's it shows the boxes but wont grab the feed.

It looks like your server may have disabled PHP's ability to open external URLs via fopen(). You may want to ask your web host about that.

p.s: In the future, please start a new thread when asking a question of your own.


there...well, i contacted my web hoster and he has informed me that fopen is on.. but the script still isnt working...

fopen is on

; Fopen wrappers ;

; Whether to allow the treatment of URLs (like http:// or ftp://) as files.
allow_url_fopen = On

It may be a problem with the script itself.

...well, any suggestions ? maybe a test page to see if fopen is working...

Try creating a blank PHP page with just the below code in it:


And run this page. Then look for the line:

allow_url_fopen = On

A value of "off" immediately tells you fopen() has been disallowed from fetching external URL files. If it's "on", you still need to check with your web host to see if it's in fact still disabled at a higher level.

Along with what ddadmin posted above, try going to lastRss.php by accessing it in your browser. Example:


and see if it you either get a blank page or an error message, or something else like that. If you get a 404 (Page Not Found error), then you know that the file isn't uploaded. If not, then you may want to check file permissions.

Hope this helps.
