In PHP CURL POST tutorial, I have explained how to send HTTP GET / POST requests with PHP CURL library.
Below are the examples covered in this article.
1) Send HTTP GET Request with CURL
2) Send HTTP POST Requests with CURL
3) Send Random User-Agent in the Requests
4) Handle redirects (HTTP 301,302)
5) Handle Errors.
Why we need PHP CURL ?
