force ipv4 php curl



If you encounter this problem with file_get_contents(), get_headers(), etc. you can try to recompile PHP using –disable-ipv6 option to ./configure.

Or you can add the following lines in /etc/sysctl.conf :

#disable ipv6
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1


echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6


when performing curl queries with php the ipv6 version of a site may be served even thought it’s not ready, which causes 503 or 404 errors. force ipv4 until ipv6 routing is stable. glype
