PHP POST not working, what module to enable
I want to make a PHP POST request from my new VPS server to another IP address. I checked the firewall and everything seemed fine but the request never went to the other IP, so I then tried making the same request with node.js and it went through. The question is, what PHP module/extension do I need to enable to allow php requests with or without curl.
A simple CURL request:
$ch = curl_init(); $url='http://example.com/'; curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query($data)); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); $server_output = curl_exec ($ch); curl_close ($ch);
