In PHP using function file_get_contents(), is it possible to hide when it outputs warning or error (for instance when http request is denied it would display warning, is there any way to get rid of that?

Maybe with try, catch?

You can just use @file_get_contents(), which will supress the warnings

Well, as this is only 1 time occurrence requirement, @ will probably do the job. Thanks!

Assuming something like this:
$site="http://www.google.com";
$content = file_get_content($site);
echo $content;

Step 1: check the return code: if ($content==FALSE) { handle error here... }
Step 2: suppress the warning by putting an @ in front of the file_get_content: $content = @file_get_content($site); (note, use this sparingly!! See Error Control Operators)

or

$content = @file_get_contents("http://www.google.com");
if (strpos($http_response_header[0], "200")) {
   echo "SUCCESS";
} else {
   echo "FAILED";
}
