Create an Internet or Unix domain server socket

Syntax

stream_socket_server ( string $local_socket [, int &$errno [, string &$errstr [, int $flags = STREAM_SERVER_BIND | STREAM_SERVER_LISTEN [, resource $context ]]]] ) : resource

Parameters

local_socket

The type of socket created is determined by the transport specified using standard URL formatting: transport://target.

For Internet Domain sockets (AF_INET) such as TCP and UDP, the target portion of the remote_socket parameter should consist of a hostname or IP address followed by a colon and a port number. For Unix domain sockets, the target portion should point to the socket file on the filesystem.

Depending on the environment, Unix domain sockets may not be available. A list of available transports can be retrieved using stream_get_transports(). See List of Supported Socket Transports for a list of bulitin transports.

errno

If the optional errno and errstr arguments are present they will be set to indicate the actual system level error that occurred in the system-level socket(), bind(), and listen() calls. If the value returned in errno is 0 and the function returned FALSE, it is an indication that the error occurred before the bind() call. This is most likely due to a problem initializing the socket. Note that the errno and errstr arguments will always be passed by reference.

errstr

See errno description.

flags

A bitmask field which may be set to any combination of socket creation flags.

Note: For UDP sockets, you must use STREAM_SERVER_BIND as the flags parameter.

context

Return

Returns the created stream, or FALSE on error.
