For security reasons this isn't possible. Otherwise I could easily read any site's PHP code and get all kinds of neato highly sensitive info.

EDIT: That's not entirely true, I forgot about the whole http wrapper thing and the ability to "sort of" include remote PHP files. It's more like you can pass variables to the remote PHP file and get the return value from that file but it's not the same as a normal include.

Read this page for the details:
