php security allow_url_include: use cURL() instead?

Hi,

I'm wondering how I would use the curl() in place of something of this code:

require_once('root.php');
require_once(ROOTFORM.'/classes/class.mysql.php');

Open in new window


where root.php is:
    define("ROOTCLASSES", "http://localhost/seokh/co_seokh/seokh/classes/form");
    define("ROOTFORM", "http://localhost/seokh/co_seokh/seokh/test/trunk/jquery/form

Open in new window

");

I receive this warning:
Warning: require_once(): http:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_include=0 in /usr/local/apache/htdocs/seokh/co_seokh/seokh/test/trunk/jquery/form/saveName.php on line 3

This page says to use curl for remote file access:
http://phpsec.org/projects/phpsecinfo/tests/allow_url_include.html

Should I be using curl or something else instead of include() or require()? If so, could you give me some code samples of, perhaps, what you use?

Thank you,
Victor

require_once needs a local path, nothing starting with http://

This can be either relative (like ./path/to/class.php) or absolute (/var/www/path/to/class.php). Keep in mind windows uses backslashes while linux normal ones. The preset constant DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR has always the right one.

define('DS', DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR);
define('ROOTFORM', '..' . DS . 'jquery' . DS . 'form' . DS);

require_once(ROOTFORM . 'classes' . DS . 'class.mysql.php');

I don't believe you need CURL at all.  Your script needs to include a local file, so HTTP is irrelevant.  The file is already on your server.  The real question is, "Where is your file relative to your script that needs it?"  It might be as simple as this:
require_once('/classes/class.mysql.php');

Open in new window
