allow_url_fopen – DreamHost

The PHP option allow_url_fopen would normally allow a programmer to open, include or otherwise use a remote file using a URL rather than a local file path. For security reasons, DreamHost has disabled this feature; however, a feature-rich alternative exists in the form of the bundled cURL library, and you can always get around the problem by compiling your own version of PHP.

Dreamhost disables fopen by default, and it sux.
but at least you can get things working with curl.
