This may be a very easy question, and I may need to supply more
information, but basically trying to read a file at a URL with
file_get_contents() returns the error message:

[function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request
failed! HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden

Any help is appreciated & thanks in advance,

The server from which you are requesting the data isn't allowing it.
Try putting the URL in your browser and see if you get the same
result.  If so, find out from the person who operates the server why
your request is forbidden.
