How to get Alternative to file get contents

0 votes

This is my code:

$xml_file = file_get_contents(SITE_PATH . 'cms/data.php');

The problem is that a server has URL file-access disabled. I cannot enable it, its a hosting thing.

So the question is this. The data.php file generates xml code.

How can I execute this and get the xml data without doing the above method?

Is it possible?

Hii,

Use cURL. This function is an alternative to file_get_contents.

function url_get_contents ($Url) {
    if (!function_exists('curl_init')){ 
        die('CURL is not installed!');
    }
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $Url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    $output = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    return $output;
}

Hope it helps!!
