First, make sure you can get a simple php script to run. Something like:

Code: Select all
<?php
  echo "Hello World";
?>


Otherwise, the two most common problems are that the curl library (libcurl) isn't installed in the PHP setup. Or, the web host has a firewall block on outgoing connections or with the particular port (i.e., port 8087) that you are connecting to. You may need to ask yahoo tech support about those.

Since I wrote all of the PHP examples, I of course already have a copy. You need to check with Yahoo about the two issues I mentioned. You'll probably need to hire a programmer if you don't have any web scripting experience.

I don't know where your web site is, let alone the location of your php files. But changing web hosts may not be necessary if it's just a matter of flipping a switch on a firewall setting or installing a library. As I mentioned, you need to contact them and ask:

1. Is Curl installed in my php setup?
2. Are there any firewalls blocking an outgoing connection to another site on port 8087? If so, how do I unblock that?

It's likely a firewall issue then. Ask yahoo if they are blocking outgoing connections made with curl on certain ports. Tell them you need to connect to port 8087 on an external web server.
