"php soapclient timeout" Answer’s


Have a look at

  • Timing Out PHP Soap Calls by Robert; 21 Oct 2009

if you are comfortable and your environment allows you to extend classes.

It basically extends the SoapClient class, replaces the HTTP transport with curl which can handle the timeouts:

class SoapClientTimeout extends SoapClient
    private $timeout;

    public function __setTimeout($timeout)
        if (!is_int($timeout) && !is_null($timeout))
            throw new Exception("Invalid timeout value");

        $this->timeout = $timeout;

    public function __doRequest($request, $location, $action, $version, $one_way = FALSE)
        if (!$this->timeout)
            // Call via parent because we require no timeout
            $response = parent::__doRequest($request, $location, $action, $version, $one_way);
            // Call via Curl and use the timeout
            $curl = curl_init($location);

            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, FALSE);
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, TRUE);
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, TRUE);
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $request);
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, FALSE);
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array("Content-Type: text/xml"));
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, $this->timeout);

            $response = curl_exec($curl);

            if (curl_errno($curl))
                throw new Exception(curl_error($curl));


        // Return?
        if (!$one_way)
            return ($response);
