Accessing another URL for information
Posted on 2012-09-07
I've got a situation where I'm having to retrieve data from another server.
The page my user will access has on it a statement that says, "Look how we've helped our members thus far:" After the ":," there will be a number that represents the number of pounds their membership has lost that year.
That number will be computed using a database and script sitting on another server. Obviously it would be a slam dunk if I could put everything on the server my user is accessing, but that isn't the case, at least right now.
So, is there a way I could use a "GET" dynamic to retrieve the number I need?
