How to use basic authorization in PHP curl

0 votes

I am having problem with PHP curl request with basic authorization.

Here is the command line curl:

curl -H "Accept: application/product+xml" "https://{id}:{api_key}@api.domain.com/products?limit=1&offset=0"

I have tried by setting curl header in following ways but it's not working

Authorization: Basic id:api_key
or 
Authorization: Basic {id}:{api_key}

I get the response "authentication parameter in the request are missing or invalid" but I have used proper id and api_key which is working in command line curl (I tested)

Hello @kartik,

Try the following code :

$username='ABC';
$password='XYZ';
$URL='<URL>';

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$URL);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 30); //timeout after 30 seconds
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_ANY);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$username:$password");
$result=curl_exec ($ch);
$status_code = curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);   //get status code
curl_close ($ch);

If you are saying Basic authentication, then the syntax is like below. In this code, I have created a basic authentication header and pass it to the curl request.

$host = 'https://www.discussdesk.com/';
$user_name = 'set_user_name';
$password = 'set_password';
$ch = curl_init($host);
$headers = array(
'Content-Type: application/json',
'Authorization: Basic '. base64_encode("$user_name:$password")
);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
$response = curl_exec($ch);
if(curl_errno($ch)){
// throw the an Exception.
throw new Exception(curl_error($ch));
}
curl_close($ch);
echo $response;
