A new feature to help troubleshoot connections to slow external servers
We’ve also added a custom “patch” to our copies of PHP 7.0 and 7.1 that provides a new feature: logging of slow outgoing connections from your scripts.
This can show the cause when a WordPress or Joomla site suddenly becomes slow or unresponsive for no obvious reason. The culprit is often an add-on plugin or component that contacts a third-party server to do its work, but “hangs” when the third-party server doesn’t respond.
Our page about logging slow external connections has more information.
