Get error message:"Oxwall can't connect to update server. Seems you need to enable `url_fopen` in your php settings." at top of admin panel.
Site and admin functions appear to be OK.
What am I not getting and how do I correct this?

Just got this from my host:
"Thank you for writing in.
We have disabled allow_url_fopen php configuration on the server due to its hacking vulnerabilities ,very few applications require it, and by disabling it we will prevent exploitation of PHP remote include vulnerabilities. Applications that do require it can be modified to use cURL instead. Use a function in curl instead of file_get_contents()" which will perform the same task for you. Please contact your developer and modify the code in your files."

OK - How do I do this??
