I'm deploying a SOAP server using PHP in order to offer web services to our company.  I'm new to SOAP, and have been using examples found online and modifying them.  My base example which simply returns a string, seems to work but takes a VERY long time.  Other examples which actually return database values are timing out.  I'm guessing some url is malformed, but am not familiar enough to figure it out.

server.php
client.php
scramble.wsdl.txt

Don't know if this causes the slow connection or the time out, but I saw that the keep-alive mechanism can cause timeouts when calling SOAP service. Especially take a look at the two bottom comments on the PHP documentation website:

http://php.net/manual/de/class.soapclient.php

The scripts itself should perform well, I haven't found a reason why they run too slow.

It's also a good idea to check your web server logs for aborted connections or errornous scripts.

Good luck!
