I need some guidance on how to handle errors related to network connectivity or HTTP status codes in PHP. I'm currently working on a web application that makes several API requests and I want to handle potential errors that may arise due to network issues or HTTP status codes.
I have already implemented the basic error handling in my PHP code, but I want to improve it by specifically addressing network-related errors or HTTP status codes. For example, how can I gracefully handle situations like a timeout error or a 404 Not Found error?
I would appreciate any suggestions or best practices regarding how to handle these types of errors effectively in PHP. Are there any built-in functions or libraries that can simplify this process? And what are some techniques I can use to provide meaningful error messages or handle these errors programmatically?
Thank you in advance for your help!
