RSS Parsing problem



I just switched to hosting with Dreamhost.
I had been using Feed2HTML ( code to parse an RSS feed onto my site, but I can’t seem to get it to work on dreamhost.
Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be, or can anyone supply me with equaly simple code?



From looking at the forums for that software, it appears that the script relies upon allow_url-fopen being enabled, and it relies on that instead of using cURL.

Allow_url_fopen is disabled on DreamHost for security reasons (as it should be).

Your choices are to:

  1. Recode the script to use cURL

  2. Install your own PHP, or use a copy of DH PHP with your own php.ini to enable allow_url_fopen (please do not do this - it was disabled by DreamHost for a reason :wink: )

  3. Use different software to accomplish what you are trying to do.

I vote for choice 3 - I use feed2js, and it’s related tools (magpierss), all the time on DreamHost, and it works very well.



That worked great!


Good deal! You are welcome, and I’m glad it worked well for you! :slight_smile:



magpierss gets my vote every time!

Using it now on a few sites.
