How can I detect URL Not Found Error in php curl?

How can I detect this error using php curl? curl return success even if the URL does not exist.

Not Found
The requested URL /foo/index.php/items/edit was not found on this server.


My code

$post_fields = array('info' => json_encode($fields));
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_URL,$url);
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_POST,count($post_fields));
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,$post_fields);
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,true);
curl_setopt($ch,CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE,'application/x-www-form-urlencoded charset=utf-8');

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

if(curl_error($ch)){
$result = curl_error($ch);
curl_close($ch);
return $result;
}else{
curl_close($ch);
return json_decode($result,true);

}

Answer

use this to get HTTP status code:

$code = curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);

If 404, it means the request URL cannot be found.

Note: remember to issue this line before curl_close($ch);
