So I am trying out this tutorial below to get the hang of utilizing the isbndb.com api:
Everything came together fine, but when I run a search I get errors from the simplexml_load_file function.
I get first this error:
failed to open stream: Connection refused
Then this error:
I/O warning : failed to load external entity
My server account at Batcave.net is using PHP 5.2.5 so simplexml_load_file should be able to work. Also, when I go to the url directly ("http://isbndb.com/api/books.xml?access_key=O4FQEY32&results=details&index1=isbn&value1=1932073205" for example)in a browser it displays the xml, so it appears that url is correct for connecting to the isbndb.
Any help getting this working would be appreciated. Thanks!
