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


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


You'll find php/curl examples here:, especially

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

$ch = curl_init();

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,

// 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 { ... }
