Zend HTTP Client Invalid URI?


I'm having trouble using Zend HTTP on a URL:

$client = new Zend_Http_Client('http://xxfire_killumiex.api.channel.livestream.com/2.0/info.json'); $feed = $client->request()->getBody();

For some reason, this gives me an error...

Invalid URI supplied

Whats wrong this this specific url?



Whats wrong this this specific url?


The underscore.

From RFC 1912


Allowable characters in a label for a host name are only ASCII letters, digits, and the `-' character.



After doing some more reading, it seems that Zend may be wrong in this case.

See <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2180465/can-someone-have-a-subdomain-with-an-underscore-in-it/2183140#2183140" rel="nofollow">Can (domain name) subdomains have an underscore "_" in it?</a>

According to <a href="http://www.zendframework.com/issues/browse/ZF-9671" rel="nofollow">ZF-9671</a>, you might be out of luck, though I've re-opened the issue.

My suggestion in the meantime; Create your own HTTP client class like this

class My_Http_Client extends Zend_Http_Client { public function validateHost($host = null) { if ($host === null) { $host = $this->_host; } // If the host is empty, then it is considered invalid if (strlen($host) === 0) { return false; } return true; } }
