PHP Question

Amazon Product API with PHP

I'm trying to integrate Amazon Product API into my website and came across several posts that helped me construct the URL. Only problem is when I execute the code below I get the following error. Am I doing something wrong?

// Add the Timestamp

// Sort the URL parameters

foreach(array_keys($url_params) as $key)
$url_parts[] = $key."=".$url_params[$key];
sort($url_parts);

// Construct the string to sign
$string_to_sign = "GET\necs.amazonaws.com\n/onca/xml\n".implode("&",$url_parts);
$string_to_sign = str_replace('+','%20',$string_to_sign);
$string_to_sign = str_replace(':','%3A',$string_to_sign);
$string_to_sign = str_replace(';',urlencode(';'),$string_to_sign);

// Sign the request
$signature = hash_hmac("sha256",$string_to_sign,$AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY,TRUE);

// Base64 encode the signature and make it URL safe
$signature = base64_encode($signature);
$signature = str_replace('+','%2B',$signature);
$signature = str_replace('=','%3D',$signature);

$url_string = implode("&",$url_parts);
$url = $base_url.$url_string."&Signature=".$signature;
print $url;

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 15);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);

$xml_response = curl_exec($ch);
echo $xml_response;


EDIT

THE ABOVE CODE NOW WORKS...I WAS MISSING A "?" after the BASE URL

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 15);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);

$xml_response = curl_exec($ch);
echo $xml_response;

For anyone that was wondering. You can then navigate the xml_response using simplexml!

Hope this helps someone out there :)
