Transitioning to PDO/MySQL. Need help with importing file from URL

How do I make this file compatible with PDO.  I am getting the following error...

Fatal error: Cannot access empty property (on this line - $conn->$filename="http://website.com/feeds/productdownload.php?id=MPB_MzY2MDc3MzY2MDc3MzQw&version=2&format=csv&fields=sku";)






$conn = new PDO("mysql:host=$host;dbname=$db;charset=$charset", $user, $pass);

$conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);

$conn->$filename="http://website.com/feeds/productdownload.php?id=MPB_MzY2MDc3MzY2MDc3MzQw&version=2&format=csv&fields=sku";



//rebs,rebe,spec,os&time= . $time . ";
//open the file
$handle = fopen($filename, "r");
//this is what causes it to skip
fgetcsv($handle,",");




//begin looping through the lines
while (($data = fgetcsv($handle, ",")) !== FALSE)
{


// loop all column values and escape special characters
 foreach ($data as $key => $value){
  $data[$key] = mysql_real_escape_string($value);
}

echo ".$data[0].";


}

quizwedge, Thanks!  I attempted to manipulate the code several different ways to make it work.  I viewed the page your posted above and cannot make heads or tails of it.    If someone could show me how to do it, that would be great.

Try running
phpinfo();

Open in new window


That should print to the screen a bunch of information, part of which should be allow_url_fopen. In order to use fopen with a URL, that should be on. Assuming it's on, you should be able to do something similar to

$conn = new PDO("mysql:host=$host;dbname=$db;charset=$charset", $user, $pass);
$conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);

$filename="http://website.com/feeds/productdownload.php?id=MPB_MzY2MDc3MzY2MDc3MzQw&version=2&format=csv&fields=sku";

//open the file
$handle = fopen($filename, "r");

Hope that helps.
