Hi folks is there a way to access with include a file in another domain? I have two domains in different servers and I want it to be able to include a file from the other server, is this possible? If it is, how would I go about it?

Are  you wanting the rendered version of the file or the actual file contents such as the php code?

Hope this will help you out. Good luck doRodrigo!

The file has a conditional if that checks the domain from which the script is being opened, and if it is a certain domain it gives a certain html and if it is from another it gives another html.

Cheers!

That shouldn't be a problem. Once you know the domain from where the request is done, you can decide with the if what html file you need on the remote domain.
You can then "fopen" the html file from the second domain, and use it locally.

Ok, so you just need to grab the rendered html - That makes is a lot easier.  

The php settings on the "remote" server will need allow_url_fopen enabled.  If it isn't you will have to go the cURL route or use other options such as fsockopen().

If allow_url_fopen is enabled this should work:

include "http://www.yoursite.net/included_file.php";

if the page that is calling the included file requires the file you may want to use the require() or require_once() functions: http://php.net/manual/en/function.require-once.php

If you need additional help troubleshooting, just let us know.

Whether you can "include a file in another domain?" will depend on whether your hosting company allows it.  It should be very easy to test.  As long as you control both of the domains in question there is not much security to worry about.

Ray is right about the host allowing it, that is why I previously mentioned:

 "The php settings on the "remote" server will need allow_url_fopen enabled.  If it isn't you will have to go the cURL route or use other options such as fsockopen()."

Some important information to read before you depend on this:

http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=47444
http://www.php.net/manual/en/filesystem.configuration.php

So you want to set the permission in your php.ini file -- it is not settable inside your script with a line like this:

ini_set('allow_url_include', TRUE); // DOES NOT WORK

The code snippet failed with this message. Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: http:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_include=0 in /home/websitet/public_html/RAY_temp_dorodrigo.php on line 5


<?php // RAY_temp_dorodrigo.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('allow_url_include', TRUE);
echo "Hello World from LAPRBass.com";
require_once('http://nationalpres.org/RAY_temp_dorodrigo.php');

Open in new window

This version worked fine.
<?php // RAY_temp_dorodrigo.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
echo "Hello World from LAPRBass.com";
echo file_get_contents('http://nationalpres.org/RAY_temp_dorodrigo.php');

Open in new window
