Now there is still a problem.
When I DO added the second parameter to the code, it still gives me the error notice of "send_packet(GEARMAN_COULD_NOT_CONNECT)".
At first, I thought it was the problem of my code, so I tested another piece of code which isn't changed by me, and it is also the code sample which I ran for testing gearman. However, it still failed. Any help?

The addServer and addServers are unforgiving when any of the addresses are down. I tried using exceptions, but it does not quite work. Can you provide a working example to handle a list of servers where one or more is not running.

Since a few versions the port parameter is not optional anymore. I have version 1.1.1 of pecl/gearman compiled with libgearman 1.1.5, and I'm getting the following error:

send_packet(GEARMAN_COULD_NOT_CONNECT) Failed to send server-options packet -> libgearman/

This happens if you don't provide a port.

Just set the second parameter to 4730 and it is working again.
