creating my first product, everything works fine excepted that Thumbnail Image URL.
I have this:
“The URL specified in the “Thumbnail Image URL” field does not seem to be a valid URL! Please check this value again”
I have also this:
“URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration etc”
so I added php.ini with allow_url_fopen = On
but I have to add it in each folder ??? 1and1 provides a script to do that but I don’t want to copy it everywhere
as I will have the same problem with ioncube/pdf stamp, could you tell me where I have to put this (these) php.ini files ?December 11, 2010 at 10:10 pm #27294designthemediaMember
answering to myself.
it could be useful for others
I had to put the php.ini ONLY in wp-admin.
I’m on 1and1 (1&1) and it works FINE now!December 13, 2010 at 6:49 pm #27295uladkMember
Thank you very much. I had been looking for the correct folder to place mine.
I still get errors with URLs it seems:
The URL specified in the “Product Page URL” field does not seem to be a valid URL! Please check this value again:
URL seems valid to me. Any Ideas?December 13, 2010 at 6:54 pm #27296uladkMember
I just realised the problem and why I get the URL error.
The page I’m doing testing on is a private wordpress page so the URL will work when logged in but still throw the error message.December 13, 2010 at 11:57 pm #27297wpCommerceModerator
When I click on the link it gives me a 404 error. Either your URL is not correct or I’m not allowed to access that page. If your URL is correct then you should make it so that the visitors can access the page.January 27, 2011 at 1:00 am #27298ChrisMember
I’m also on 1and1, same isssue — so, created “php.ini” with “allow_url_fopen = On” and placed it in the wp-admin directory just like the person above; however, am still getting the same errors. Any suggestions?January 27, 2011 at 5:16 am #27299amin007Participant
If you know that the URL is correct then you can ignore that error message (it will not harm your site). It is just checking to see if the URL is correct or not but obviously something on your server is blocking the method used to perform the URL validation check. Which is why it is showing that error. Your users won’t see that error (it is only for the admin).
If you want to fix that error then do the following:
– Make sure you are using a more recent version of PHP on your server (PHPv5.2+)
– Make sure you are using the latest version of WordPress on your server.
– Check to see if your hosting has the “fopen” ability disabled on your server.September 25, 2011 at 5:31 am #27300DonnaMillerMember
I just had the same issue. My host disabled allow_url_fopen because it’s vulnerable to injection script attacks. Here is the information they posted about it. I have it turned on now, but they say this should only be a temporary measure and it’s better if developers use other methods instead.

We added another checking method for sites that doesn’t have the PHP get_header call enabled. Get another build of eStore from here and test it out:
