I'm running into some issues with the `stream_set_timeout()` function in PHP, and I was hoping you could help me out. I'm fairly new to PHP, so please bear with me if I ask any rookie questions.
Here's the problem I'm facing. I have implemented a script that makes a request to an external server using the `fsockopen()` function. Now, I want to set a timeout for this request, so that if the external server doesn't respond within a certain timeframe, my script can handle the situation accordingly.
From what I have read, it seems like the `stream_set_timeout()` function is what I need to use for this purpose. However, I'm not entirely sure how to properly use it.
Could someone please provide me with an example of how to use `stream_set_timeout()` correctly? I would greatly appreciate it if you could explain each parameter of the function and their significance as well.
Thanks in advance!
