How can I do a RAW POST in PHP using cURL?
Raw post as in without any encoding, and my data is stored in a string. The data should be formatted like this:
... usual HTTP header ...
89c5fdataasdhf kajshfd akjshfksa hfdkjsa falkjshfsa
ajshd fkjsahfd lkjsahflksahfdlkashfhsadkjfsalhfd
ajshdfhsafiahfiuwhflsf this is just data from a string
more data kjahfdhsakjfhsalkjfdhalksfd
I just found the solution, kind of answering to my own question in case anyone else stumbles upon it.
$ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "http://url/url/url" ); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1 ); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1 ); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "body goes here" ); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Content-Type: text/plain')); $result=curl_exec ($ch);
