I’ve recently installed FusionBB for testing on a new subdomain of mine. It works beautifully…except for one nagging issue.
"URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration"
Yes, I’ve read the previous threads about this being disabled as well as the Wiki entry with “workarounds”. However, I wanted to know if anyone else had tried FusionBB on DreamHost and figured out a way around this issue.
I posted about this in the FusionBB support forum:
The response was essentially “Yeah, I’m not sure how else to fetch a remote file, if you can’t fetch a remote file. I’ve never seen a host disable this though… and I’ve worked on a lotta sites.”
Yeah, really helpful. …
…and so now I turn to the DreamHosted masses for help. I know Perl programming, but zero PHP…so I’m kinda stuck.
