Default PHP5 Security Block

I had a website running a XML script which worked perfectly but I have updated it by using XMLReader and PHP 5. However, there is a security update on PHP 5 which prevents me from accessing files on my server.

Someone has suggested I add a php.ini file with the following:

allow_url_fopen = on

allow_url_include = on

However I have also read that the whole purpose of the security update is to prevent this. Can someone advise me how I can get around this issue so that my server can read files and still operate by the PHP5 security update.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
