    Hi there, to begin with I am a new guy so if u have answered this question somewhere please point me to that entry
    Windows shared hosting on godaddy with php5 iis7

    I am using simplexml_load_file to use URL based file from another server(news feed
    this function is called from a widget class created by me.
    Got the error URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration
    Learnt I had to upload a php.ini file. Uploaded it in my root.
    Renamed it to php5.ini
    Changed the extension directory to point to godaddy c:\php5\ext
    my function in a simple php not a widget works fine ->
    my blog crashed ->
    Obviously my php5.ini is to blame but how do i overcome this problem without crashing my blog
