Errors Updating User Account

First Post
Hi,

I'm trying to update my account through the User Control Panel and am getting errors back (and the changes aren't taking. Otherwise I wouldn't mention the errors).

When I try updating my options (at http://www.enworld.org/profile.php?do=editoptions) I get this error:

Warning: fopen(http://...@DrewBaker.com) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No route to host in /shop/functions_rpgnow.php on line 142

Unable to open remote file.


When I try changing my email address from an @drewbaker.com address to a gmail address I get this error:

Warning: fopen(http://...@gmail.com) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No route to host in /shop/functions_rpgnow.php on line 142

Unable to open remote file.

Thanks,

--Drew

Hmm. That's odd - I think this is a job for someone more technical than I am!

If you like, I can manually make the changes in the short run.

Yup. I'd just like to chime in with a "me too." Embarq is finally ditching Earthlink as a partner, so I'm having to change all my email addies everywhere...

Recent Hacker attacks against the server have been predicated on the ability of PHP to open remote files as if they where part of the server file structure. As a temporary measure until the box can be locked down more securely I disabled this feature.

Any guess as to when this problem will be fixed?

Email notification isn't working for me right now and I want to change my addy.

Yup, I've got until October until my email address starts bouncing rather than forwarding mail...theoretically, but it would be nice to know I could still get email notifications after that.

I'll add another 'me too'. Can't change my email address :( Is there some sort of work-around we can use? If it's any help, I would like my new address to be Mike.Rousos (at) gmail.com

Thanks!

Same problem here. My provider has changed its name and in about two months the old email address will stop working. So it would be super if this issue could be solved within the next two months :)

cheers

Add another "me too" to the list. I wanted to turn off the "show my RPGNow Bookshelf" option and I can't do it. I get the same error.

My email is hosted by gmail but has a different address than gmail.com.

Any word on a fix for this? I am trying to divest my work and non-work email and this is one of the few sites I haven't been able to update.
