An error message appears when installing GREYD.SUITE.

The following error message might appear when installing GREYD.SUITE:

The PHP settings of your server are not configured correctly.
The variable allow_url_fopen is disabled, which leads to display errors on your website. Please contact your server administrator to solve the problem.

"allow_url_fopen" is a PHP function to define loading times and to load content via external URLs. This function needs to be enabled to use GREYD.SUITE. Most hosting providers do this by default.

In case the function is disabled, hosting providers often refer to security risks, since wrong usage of the function may lead to security issues. However, with GREYD.SUITE's code standard, its extensive security concept and regular pen tests, this is not a problem here. Thus, the function can be used without risk.
