Getting error when trying to install add on from marketplace

Hi, I’m unable to download simple gallery from the marketplace. I’m getting

" Whoops \ Exception \ ErrorException (E_WARNING)

fopen(): https:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_fopen=0"

I’m using version 9.1.3 of concrete and php version 7.4.33.

Any ideas on how to fix?
Thank you.

I’m sure someone with better technical knowledge will weigh in but in the meantime… I feel like I have come across this during installation on my server and I believe it has something to do with open_basedir. By default my server sets a value for this but if I set it to ‘none’ the install continues without a hitch. I could be way off though :slight_smile:

The error message indicates that in your server configuration you should have


If you’re using cPanel you can probably set that up directly from there using the PHP configuration tool.

Otherwise you might have a php.ini file on your server where you can add that directive.


Thank you for all the help. I tried both suggestions and couldn’t get either to work. I ended up contacting support from my web host and they said they needed to do something on their end to make it work. I looked at all the obvious places like my php.ini file and such and didn’t see any changes that they made, so who knows.

Thank you again as it led me to get it resolved.
