  1. CURL is a dll on my Windows server - I don't know how to run that from CMD - unless I download the standalone curl.exe. If I wait half an hour or so I finally get an error from fie_get_contents: Warning: file_get_contents(http://www.google.com) [ function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. My intuition is that there's some server or network setting that is denying the HTTP request from the server.
  2. I can use both file_get_contents and CURL to fetch the contents of a file on my server, but when I attempt to read a file from outside the server, both just spin forever, never reading the file. I'm on IIS7 - and Curl is installed and running. I can browse to the locations with no trouble, but if I attempt to fetch the files using PHP, I get nothing. Is there some other setting in IIS that I need to enable or disable? What am I missing? Neither works: $sourceLink = "http://www.google.com"; $sourcePageHTML = file_get_contents($sourceLink); print $sourcePageHTML; $ch = curl_init("http://www.google.com"); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1); $data = curl_exec($ch); print($data); Both work: $sourceLink = "http://myserver/myfile.php"; $sourcePageHTML = file_get_contents($sourceLink); print $sourcePageHTML; $ch = curl_init("http://myserver/myfile.php"); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1); $data = curl_exec($ch); print($data);
  3. OK -thanks! Yes, that works. But what if I did this: SELECT Courses.CourseTitle, Events.EventDate FROM Courses LEFT JOIN Events on (Events.CID = Courses.CID) Distinct wouldn't work, right?
  4. I want to fetch the titles from the Courses table, but I only want the Course Title to return once when I join Events. Courses CID | CourseTitle 1 | Course A 2 | Course B 3 | Course C Events EID | CID | EventDate 1 | 1 | 2016-02-22 2 | 1 | 2016-02-23 3 | 2 | 2016-02-24 4 | 3 | 2016-02-25 5 | 3 | 2016-02-26 If I use a JOIN, SELECT Courses.CourseTitle FROM Courses LEFT JOIN Events on (Events.CID = Courses.CID) then I get Course A Course A Course B Course C Course C But what I want is Course A Course B Course C Because ultimately, I'm going to select an Event date range, and I want to see just the courses with the event date range. Thanks!
