Bad news below. How we are supposed to keep apps running on a provider that pulls sections of rug out from under them WITHOUT EVEN ADVANCE NOTICE, goodness only knows.
And since php_info() says:
Directive Local Value Master Value
allow_url_fopen On On
have DH got some way of making disablings hidden from phpinfo()?
PHP Configuration Change, allow_url_fopen Disabled (Policy Change)

PHP provides a feature allowing a programmer to open, include or otherwise use a remote file using a URL rather than a local file path. Unfortunately, that feature is the source of a large number of security holes in PHP web applications running on our servers and we have been spending an increasing amount of time handling issues resulting from those security exploits.
In the interest of overall system security, we have decided to disable this feature as of now. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact our support team if you have any questions.
