i'm trying to use SimpleXMLElement in a script but the result is always empty.
i found this documenting a version problem "SimpleXML doesnt Work with PHP 5.x: Problem & Solution" <http://blog.taragana.com/index.php/archive/simplexml-doesnt-work-with-php-5x-problem-solution/
> but my issue is accessing the php.ini which my isp seem to be discouraging me from modifying it.
i also ran a test and got this "URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration" message confirming my problem.
does anyone know another way of getting around the compatibility issue using "SimpleXMLElement" and "file_get_contents"?
