I have a PHP script which uses cURL to retrieve maps from Google. Until yesterday it was working fine. Now, every once in while I get a curl error: "Couldn't resolve host 'maps.google.com'". Some of the time it works, some of the time it doesn't. Here is a short script that reproduces the problem: Code: <?php /* * [URL]http://belltown.x10hosting.com/test.php[/URL] */ $url = "[URL]http://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap[/URL]?". "center=seattle,wa&". "zoom=13&". "size=640x640&". "maptype=roadmap&". "format=jpg&". "mobile=true&". "sensor=false"; if (($c = curl_init ($url)) === false) die ("curl_init error: ".curl_error ($c)); if (curl_exec ($c) === false) die ("curl_exec error: ".curl_error ($c)); curl_close ($c); ?> Sometimes it returns a map, sometimes it returns the following error: Code: curl_exec error: Couldn't resolve host 'maps.google.com' I wonder if this is related to the problems absolut has been having lately. Any ideas?
