Fetching the Date of a Remote File - Possible?

Post by rixtertrader » Thu May 23, 2019 2:42 am

Greetings! PHP Newbie here.

I need to be able to determine the modified or upload date of a file that is on another server (uploaded to my Amazon S3 bucket).

So from my Wordpress site (not hosted on Amazon), I'm trying to get the date as to when my file was uploaded to Amazon so as to display the date on my WP site page.

Is this even possible?

It was when the file was on the same server as WP using filemtime(), but it doesn't appear to work on a URL.

I am not seeing a phpBB support issue here. This site is for support of the phpBB Bulletin Board software, not for general php support. You need to ask at a dedicated php support site. Thanks.
