Windows 7 x64 PHP 7.2.2 x64
I am trying to view a simple request payload so I have created a PHP file per https://docstore.mik.ua/orelly/webprog/pcook/ch11_07.htm
<?php $c = curl_init('https://www.google.com'); curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1); curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_POST, 1); curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, 'monkey=uncle&rhino=aunt'); curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); $page = curl_exec($c); curl_close($c);
but I get absolutely no output unlike the example which shows that I can expect something like:
* Connected to www.example.com (10.1.1.1) > POST /submit.php HTTP/1.1 Host: www.example.com Pragma: no-cache Accept: image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, */* Content-Length: 23 Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded monkey=uncle&rhino=aunt* Connection #0 left intact * Closing connection #0
$page contains a Google 404 page so I know the request is succeeding.
Does anyone know if there are other settings which I need to address or if I am doing something blatantly wrong? In particular, I am interested in the body of the payload.
Yes, I am aware that curl'ing Google isn't particularly useful; I am trying to get this simple example to work so that I can debug an API interaction which is mysteriously failing.
Updates, per comment request
I cannot do
curl -v but
print_r( curl_version() ); produces:
