WordPress error "file_get_contents: unable to request the remote URL"
I’m getting the error “
file_get_contents: unable to request the remote URL” with a opt-in plugin. I tested it on my shared server and there were no issues. No such luck on my droplet.
I spent a few days searching forums. I’ve enabled the following lines in my php.ini.
allow_url_fopen = On allow_url_inclure = On
I created a test file to make sure it work the allow_ worked.
What else can be the issue? I contacted the plugin developer and they passed it off saying to contact the host. Nice paid support, eh?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
