php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed

P: n/a
Hy,
i have a problem with PHP 5.1.6

I have a script containing something like this:
$f=fsockopen("www.site01.com",80,$errNo,$errStr);
var_dump($f);

When accessing this from apache, i get this error:
php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed.
When running the same scipt from the CLI (php ./dns.php), i get no
error, and i`m able to connect (and read/write) to www.site01.com

I have another script containing something like this:
$f=fsockopen("www.site02.com",80,$errNo,$errStr);
var_dump($f);

This site is available both from apache, and from CLI.

( so i`m able to connect only to certain websites)

This problem appeared about 1 month ago when the dns servers failed to
work, and they were changed(in /etc/resolv.conf). Before this was
done, everything worked fine. The thing i do not understand is why
only certain sites are available from php, but no restrictions apply
when in CLI.

Anybody else had this problem?

According to some old bugreports, on a DNS servers change (or new DHCP
lease?), the 'running' PHP module doesn't get the new DNS server address,
or at least bugs, while the CLI does get the change. What happens when you
restart apache/the webserver?

The apache server was restarted many times...still nothing.
Was it completely stopped and started, or just restarted? The latter
only reloads the configuration, IIRC.

That fixed it:)
I restarted the whole server...after stopping apache it refused to
open again, so i restarted the server and it worked.

Thanx

Could it be an extension to php. some setups have multiple php.ini
files (for apache, cli, etc...) Try hunting around.
