include() php files over the internet.
I am try to transfer stuff from server to server using php and variables. This is my variable place: How do I include it in a file on a different website without it automaticly echoing?

I don't think you would be a security risk.

If the PHP file contains any HTML, that will transfer, but I don't think any of the PHP would.

If you had, for example a file on called "hello.php" with these contents:
$world = "world";
Hello <?php echo $world; ?>
And you tried to include it on, the output will only be:
So you can include a .php file from one server to another, but it will only parse the HTML parts of that file.

Above code would output "Hello world", but $world would not be set.

Unless you want your PHP source to be visible to users, you would have to use some kind of authentication or password, or include() the file via FTP.

Na you dont get it. Its open source to include over the internet so people can put it on there own site if they want. Anyway, I've found out a way to do it.

P.S incase u didnt realise, my problem was just doing include() over the internet didn't set variables even if it did say $bla = 1;
but i managed to fix that. Thanks for your help anyway.
