cURL script not working

I have a script, that when a variable is given to it using the GET method, it echoes the variable. I want to take this variable and use it on another script. This is what I have done

<?php $ch = curl_init("http://website.com/test.php?str=test");
$response = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);

echo $response; ?>


But the $response variable cointains this:


1


I don't know what I have done wrong but if someone can help me, I would really appretiate it.

Answer

You need to set CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER in order to get the response body from curl_exec.

Try this, from http://php.net/manual/en/function.curl-setopt.php:

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

before you call curl_exec.
