If the server is on a local network, are you able to access the files
through the network?  Something like file_exists
(“\\sharename\path\to\file”)

It is an internal intranet page and I am accessing word(.doc) or pdf files
that are open when I type the url on the address bar on my browser.

Tom,

I had just tried this and it works but it makes the entire web page very
slow to render.
See the page that I am dealing with needs to do this check in several
places.

One thing is that you need to use the fopen() with an '@' to suppress
warnings when 
the file does not exist.

The fopen() fixes my problem but it is slow rendering. I will try to find
another solution.

Thanks,

néstor :-)

Hi Néstor,

What happens if you do a basic fopen on the file (assuming that
allow_open_url is set to On in php.ini)?
