I am trying to load an xml file from a remote URL.  The code below works just fine when I point to a local file.  However when I use a remote file I get the following error.  Is there some sort of encoding or datatype change I need to do when passing in a URL instead of a local file?


*****
simplexml_load_file(http://www.mcqnet.net/files/test.xml) [function.simplexml-load-file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory
******
$xml = simplexml_load_file('http://www.mcqnet.net/files/test.xml');

You code exactly as above works fine at my end.  It appears that the problem does not lie with your code. I hope this helps somewhat.

Lordgobble,

PHP 5.24

I am not sure off hand if it affects simplexml_load_file, but allow_url_fopen is On.
