When I run
curl from the command line
It succeeds immediately, returning the result of the request.
When I run the same wget command
It eventually times out with "Unable to establish SSL connection." without any specific error message. It connects, but can't do the SSL handshake. I tried with
--no-check-certificate but that made no difference - it appears to be timeout related.
works fine (HTTP vs HTTPS).
This is also affecting the PHP's "
file()" method call.
My question is, what would cause curl to succeed in retrieving a page (for all sites in our domain) but not wget or the php interpreter? This is a new issue over the weekend, the server was fine before.
