    Hi, I am trying to get refbase set up, but on the main page ( , I always get the error:

    Warning: fopen( [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Operation timed out in /home/public/includes/ on line 5213

    If I paste the url in directly to the address bar, it works. Any ideas? I am hosting at nearlyfreespeech, with PHP5 flex.

      Hi Jason,

      it looks as if the PHP 'fopen()' function is not allowed on your server's account.

      For further info please see this forum post:
