Thanks for writing in.
Could you please ask your hosting provider to confirm the “allow_url_fopen” value is disabled or not?
I’m trying to update from ForumEngine 18.104.22.168 (with WordPress 4.1.1) to a hotfix release I was told is available.
The update is not showing in the WordPress admin “Updates” section, however.
I noticed that in /forumengine/functions.php, ET_UPDATE_PATH is now defined as:
The URL scheme is missing. (It looks like it was specified in version 1.5.6, which was being used prior to the update to 22.214.171.124.)
This causes the HTTP POST request made by ET_Update::get_remote_version() to fail.
$request contains this error message:
“A valid URL was not provided.”
The $this->update_path value is:
Should the URL scheme be specified?
