PHP Question

How to Get Body content of HTTPS using CURL

The following code will retrieve the body content of a url retrieved using CURL in php but not https. Can anyone tell me how I edit the code as I need to get the data returned not just the header.

From the test I did here is the result. You can see it has a content-length, I just don't know how to access it.

Thanks
Stephen

Answer

Here is the solution: Try this, just keep rest of the coding same as above...

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1);
//curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FAILONERROR, 0);
// curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_ANY);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$username:$password");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $fullurl);

$returned = curl_exec($ch);

curl_close ($ch);
var_dump($returned);

Changing CURLOPT_HEADER to 0 makes it so that only the page content is returned.
