Include a file on a different server

Recommended Posts


Been knocking my head aginst the screen because I can't include a file located on another server.

When including the file like this from a local file:

include "http://my.other.server/testing/file.php";

I get a message:

"CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:"

What am I doing wrong? Is there something in php.ini that I need to change?

My include_path is .;c:\php4\pear and I am running PHP 4.4.2 on IIS 5.

It is actually a HTML page so all I really want to do is include the tags. No scripts need to be run. I renamned it to .php because I read somewhere that you need to include files on other servers as .php (true?).

The servers are all located on an internal system so the risk off hacking is small.

Any help is welcome!
