Recently my web host disabled allow_url_fopen for security reasons, and shortly after I started noticing problems using WPBlacklist. On an existing blog, I can't import the blacklist (I get a file not found message), not even a copy located in my web space.
On a new blog, I wasn't able to install, got this error message:
Warning: file(): URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /home/[username deleted]/daisywreath.net/journal/wordpress/blacklist-install.php on line 87
): failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /home/[username deleted]/daisywreath.net/journal/wordpress/blacklist-install.php on line 87
Is there anything I can do to get things working, or should I give it up and try to find some other way to control spam? (I fumbled around with the code a bit and got the installer to work, but the blacklist still isn't functional, probably because I know approximately zip about this...)
