PHP Question

PHP + curl, HTTP POST sample code?

Can anyone show me how to do a php curl with an HTTP POST?

I want to send data like this:

username=user1, password=passuser1, gender=1


To
www.domain.com


I expect the curl to return a response like
result=OK
. Are there any examples?

Answer

You'll find php/curl examples here: http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/php/examples/, especially http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/php/examples/simplepost.html


<?php
//
// A very simple PHP example that sends a HTTP POST to a remote site
//

$ch = curl_init();

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"http://www.mysite.com/tester.phtml");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,
            "postvar1=value1&postvar2=value2&postvar3=value3");

// in real life you should use something like:
// curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, 
//          http_build_query(array('postvar1' => 'value1')));

// receive server response ...
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

$server_output = curl_exec ($ch);

curl_close ($ch);

// further processing ....
if ($server_output == "OK") { ... } else { ... }
