fsockopen, the only functionality worth a funk on this service and you disable it?
My entire site's functionality is based around it
Well, Imho, you can Cancel my account now, and i for one won't be reccomending Freepgs.com to anyone, and will even actively discourage it.
What are you doing with fsockopen? I can't think of anything you'd be doing on a website with fsockopen that isn't more easily do-able with other PHP functions.
Rest assured i've explored other options.
I use fsockopen to fake a login into a site, in order that i can fopen an URL and download its contents without the site throwing up an unknown error into a local page using fgets, strip_tags and then fwrite. I then use file_get_contents, do a preg_match and insert the values into a MySQL DB
I can't do that without fsockopen, therefore making my hosting here totally redundant.
I've already found a new host and am migrating away from freepgs......
I can understand you being mad but discouraging people from using freepgs? Isn't that a bit extreme. I love freepgs and rarely have any problems with them.
I've never seen such cheap hosting with so much services.
Then you haven't seen my new host have you?
I really am quite annoyed about this....
I won't really disparage freepgs....
But the function is integral to the functionality and purpose of my site, and without it,
I my as well not have a site.
Isn't cURL installed on this server? You can use that to replace the fsockopen function.
And mind you, fsockopen is NOT "the only functionality worth a funk on this service". Try finding a web host that provides web hosting for a one-time payment less than $10 and giving out gigs of data transfer PER DAY for the past few years. I bet you can't find two.
"I my as well not have a site."
I wouldn't even call your login script a "site", please.
