Wez Furlong's Blog:
HTTP POST from PHP, without cURL
November 15, 2006 @ 10:09:00

In an effort to get streams more out in the, er, mainstream, Wez Furlong has posted an example of some code for a common operation many use cURL for - posting to a remote script - but with streams.

Every time I search for the code snippet that allows you to do an HTTP POST request, I don't find it in the manual and resort to reading the source. So, here's an example of how to send a POST request with straight up PHP, no cURL.

The example uses stream_context_create, fopen, stream_get_contents and an Exception to send off the message from an inputted array to the remote server. Smaller things, like the Content-length header on the request, are automatically handled by the wrapper functionality. You can check out this page for more information on the wrapper functionality.
