I’d like to get some data from some Bureau of Reclamation servers to plot with my data. The BOR IT guys have been helpful and showed me how to construct urls to access the data from their old flat files on a VMS system. I thought I could use the screen scraping technique show by Welling and Thompson in “PHP and MySQL Web Development” http://www.monkee.us/~tyler/ebook/EBook/067232525X.pdf page 359, but when I tried the book’s script on DH I got
Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /home/.edison/ykfpdata/ykfp.org/php/BOR/lookup.php on line 17
Does this mean file_get_contents is disabled on DHs PHP?
