I have enabled allow_url_fopen & allow_url_include in php.ini file.
is it a security issue ?
allow_url_fopen means you can fetch pages:
$page = file_get_contents('http://www.example.com');
This is ok to enable - all it does is fetch the page. It does not
execute the code it retrieved.
allow_url_include means you can remotely include code as if it was on
That means if http://www.example.com/page.html includes any php code, it
will be executed on your server - this one definitely is a security
If you enable allow_url_include be very careful about what you include.
If you're still not sure, enable url_fopen, do not enable url_include.
