HTTP Error: Could not open handle for fopen()

  • This is a new install of WP. I am running on WIN 2003 under IIS 6.0

    I’ve looked all over but cannot find out how to resolve this.
    Thanks in advance all

  • I just fixed this issue on my install just today, you’ll need to update your php.ini file to enable: allow_url_fopen

    How did you go with that?

    Thanks, I already have that option…

    ; Whether to allow the treatment of URLs (like http:// or ftp://) as files.
    allow_url_fopen = On

    I am having this same problem and, like bostonacoustics, have the php.ini file with the aforementioned settings already.

    ; Whether to allow the treatment of URLs (like http:// or ftp://) as files.
    allow_url_fopen = On

    Does anyone know if this has been resolved. I’m having the same issue with a new install and my PHP.ini is also set for (allow_url_fopen = On )

    Thanks

    Be sure to check whatever URL you are trying to get does not return a 404 header. I recently had the same problem – even though the page did contain content, it was returning a 404 header. This wasn’t an issue in any *nix environment, but it seems Win32 will not attempt to get the content if a 404 is returned.
