I am doing a normal curl call to a webservice and I grab the return HTTP code through
$code = curl_getinfo ($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);
It does return me $code as 200 – which is good. But logging the curl calls now from a week, there where few calls to the same webservice which didn’t return anything! so basically I am getting $code as blank.
Can someone tell me what should be going wrong under those scenarios, and if can debug it more!?
Thanks everyone for the info. Yes I was also thinking the same, its not reaching the server. I will update my code with to get curl_error && curl_errno and will update you guys soon.
———————- Update 2——————————————————— I did update my code to return me the error no 7 – couldn’t connect to host. I did logged all the curl calls, so basically around 90-98% of curl calls are executing good. But only 1-2% of curl calls are not able to find the host! Can anyone tell me what could be the reason? and How I can prevent it?
Thanks again, Tanmay
If the cURL HTTP code returned nothing (aka ‘0’), that means the cURL operation failed for some reason. It would be beneficial to capture the
in your logs as well as it might give you more insight to was happened in those cases (if they happen again).
