CMSMS Version: 2.2.4
Severity: Major
Resolution: Accepted
State: Open
Summary:
Async processsing not robust
Detailed Description:
In CmsJobManager::trigger_async_processing(), fsockopen() silently fails if
there's anything untoward, in which case there's no async operation.

Examples I've found: if there's redirection (say, .htaccess appends '/' to URL)
or some certificate problem (say, self-signed).

To fix - essentially, replace fsockopen() by stream_socket_client(), with
tailored stream-context. Plus a few consequentials, of course.

I can provide recommended changes.

Other problems exist too.... like if the web server cannot resolve the host name
properly (like if CMSMS is running in a vagrant box or virtual machine)...   so
in CMSMS 2.3 or versions after 2.2.5 we will allow an alternate host URL for
async processing to bypass all of these problems.
