data feed errors

Hi all,
up until an hour or so ago my data fed page worked perfectly. Without any change to the code (or feed) the page is now throwing of errors.
A simplified version of the page can be seen here http://www.soundsair.com/orange-widget/test2.php
<?php 
ini_set('display_errors',1); 
 error_reporting(E_ALL);
 
 
/* gets the data from a URL */
function get_data($url) {
  $ch = curl_init();
  $timeout = 5;
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);
  $data = curl_exec($ch);
  curl_close($ch);
  return $data;
}

$GetTo = get_data('https://tflite.com/takeflitepublic/PgFunction.aspx?Func=GetToLocations');


// Departures
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "https://tflite.com/takeflitepublic/Pgweb.aspx?mode=arrival");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
$raw_xml = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
$arrivals_xml = new SimpleXMLElement($raw_xml);

?>
      <p>
            <?php
$cms = $arrivals_xml->flights->flight; 
echo  $cms->Banner;
?>
          </p>

    

            <div class="selectWrapper">
                 <?php
			// creates the location drop down selects
$myarray = explode("\n", $GetTo);
echo " <select name=\"From\" class=\"select\" id=\"From\" title=\"Select one\">
<option value\"Departing from\">Departing from</option>";
foreach ($myarray as  &$value) {
    echo '<option value="'.trim($value).'">'.trim($value).'</option>';
}
echo "</select>";
unset( $value );
?>
            
  
        </div>

          

    
    
    


  

Open in new window


the code for this page can be seen above. Does anyone have any clues as to why the feed has stopped working and more importantly how to fix it?
As you will see there are two feeds working on this page however neither of them work.

Hi Dave,
its back up now however the issue still stands.
Cheers,
N
This is what I get when I go to that location.
User generated image
Mmm, thats not what I get.. The page shows a list is locations. Could you being denied access to this page be part of the issue?
Just tried opening the page using Mozilla and I received the same error. Try it in IE or Chrome. The page should work fine.
N
Interesting, you're right, IE and Chrome return a list of 4 names.  I copied your code and played with it.  It would not connect from IIS on this computer so I put it on my Linux hosting.  There the response was "Object moved to here." where 'here' was a link to a page called 'blocked.htm' which of course is not on my system but may be on theirs.
More interesting still if I change the feed to this:
https://tflite.com/takeflitepublicgba/PgFunction.aspx?Func=GetToLocations

https://tflite.com/takeflitepublicgba/Pgweb.aspx?mode=arrival

It all works fine.

PS: The new feeds given above are from the same server, are structured in the same way but show different data.
So it's all working for you now?  With those URLS, I get it mostly working on my hosting with PHP 5.3 but not on my local server with PHP 5.2.
Hi Dave,
the page works when I add the new urls but not with the original urls (which is what I need to accomplish).
Cheers,
Neil

Thanks for your participation and patience with this one Dave. It turns out that the issue was not with my php but at the location of the feed. They had changed something that essentially blocked the requested into. White listing the data request solved the problem.

Glad you got it fixed.  Thanks for the points.
