Robert and others,

I made that change in the code. It still does not trap the failure. I
believe the reason is that the script is timing out while
file_get_contents() is sitting there waiting for input. The problem is that
the function never returns, so there is no return value to check. What I
need is to get file_get_contents() to quit trying before the script timeout
limit is reached, so I can catch the failure and try again. If that cannot
be done, then I need to get the shutdown function to work.

For reference, my original question is at .

If you need more control then I suggest you switch from file_get_contents() to using curl to retrieve the page. You can then set your timeout criteria.
