[php] Server configuration by allow_url_fopen=0 in

I'm getting the following error when running a script. The error message is as follows...

Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: https:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_fopen=0 in /home/satoship/public_html/connect.php on line 22

I know this is a server issue but what do I need to do to the server in order to get rid of the above warning?

The answer is

@blytung Has a nice function to replace that function

$url = "http://www.example.org/";
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 5);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
$contents = curl_exec($ch);
if (curl_errno($ch)) {
  echo curl_error($ch);
  echo "\n<br />";
  $contents = '';
} else {

if (!is_string($contents) || !strlen($contents)) {
echo "Failed to get contents.";
$contents = '';

echo $contents;
