Subject: Re: [PHP-DB] CURL and process not finishing

I am using CURL to check pages outside my site on the internet for some
text, then I email someone on my database who supposedly looks after the
site. The script creates a process that does not terminate. It is running
on a scheduled cronjob so eventually my site has over the maximum of 20
processes running and it goes offline.

It may be that some of the pages I check are hard to get a response from, as CURL tries to return the target URL. I have removed any emailing that it does and still get the problem. Is there any way to check that a process is
not terminating after a reasonable time?


Get the php script to terminate after a certain amount of time.

You could also use this curl variable: CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT

in case it's a connection issue... see http://www.php.net/curl

I'd probably also try setting CURLOPT_VERBOSE to see if that reveals
the actual problem rather than guessing.

Thanks, Chris.  This is the output:


* About to connect() to www.runawayexchange.com port 80
*   Trying * Connection timed out
* couldn't connect to host
* Closing connection #1

Problems with this one.

* About to connect() to www.uktravelplanner.co.uk port 80
*   Trying * connected
* Connected to www.uktravelplanner.co.uk ( port 80
GET /links.htm?? HTTP/1.1
Host: www.uktravelplanner.co.uk
Accept: */*

< HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

That's a bad link there (in case you didn't notice it).

...and there it stops every time. Is this a script time out, as it stops while looking at the site it is finding OK?

Set the set_time_limit to 0 (unlimited). Sounds like the script is just timing out.
