I have a URL that returns JSON data.

When I type the URL in the browser, a page displays with the text version of the data.

How do I execute the URL and capture the data from a PHP script?

I thought about the header(location:...) but that doesn't return a result.

 

 

URL:

https://myURL.com/se...staccounts=true

 

JSON:

{"result":"OK","id":"0996-5c41-b5afd54d","lastLogin":"2013-04-19 11:33:15","accounts":[{"accountName":"DeLong","systemId":"3x1x4x","passcode":"ZoTda9egUoLBOdd0","url":"https:\/\/my.granted.com:30440\/"},{"accountName":"Traveling Demo Unit","systemId":"3x1x4x","passcode":"UBUZYZVgQQLAV9Q0","url":"https:\/\/my.granted.com:30384\/"}]}

file_get_contents() works just fine with URLs.
json_decode(file_get_contents("URL"))
