filesize() not reading http pages

I have checked this setting in my php.ini

allow_url_fopen = On

It is ON be default.

According to the PHP documentation:

it stated that as of php5, filesize supports the reading of remote html
files:

http://php.net/manual/en/function.filesize.php

But I have tried the following:
echo filesize("http://www.yahoo.com/");

It returned me this error:

Warning: filesize() [function.filesi ze]: stat failed for..blah blah

Anyone have this same problem?

Yes. Im using PHP5 and php.ini's allow_url_fopen = On (Thanks to J.O. Aho)

| As of PHP 5.0.0 this function can also be used with some URL wrappers.

Notice the word "some".

The HTTP wrapper doesn't support stat() functionality.

Are you serious? Think again.

Just migrating some code from CDONTS to CDO and noticed some behaviour I want to verify. When using cdoSendUsingPickup the outgoing email spools to the local filesystem first before being routed out. When using cdoSendUsingPort it goes directly to the remote email server and seems to bypass the virtual SMTP server running on the local machine (which can be stopped). This is all fine. I noticed that sending emails that exceed the...

I get a list of filenames from a directory with the following code, but I can not work out how to get the filesize of the filename I have just found. I guess it is fileinfo.length, but I can not see how to turn my filename(string) into a statement which would give me the filesize - the brain is very slow today. Any help gratefully appreciated.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
