I have set up a Craft 3 site on shared hosting. When I try to update Craft or install plugins via the CP, I get the following error:
The "https://composer.craftcms.com/packages.json" file could not be downloaded: allow_url_fopen must be enabled in php.ini
allow_url_fopen cannot be enabled on this hosting & there is no SSH access
What are my options for updating Craft & installing/updating plugins in this scenario?
Is the only option to avoid CMS access temporarily, copy down the live database, do any updating locally and then upload the file changes & update the live database?
