//curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); // set url to post to
//curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FAILONERROR, 1);              // Fail on errors
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);    // allow redirects
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1); // return into a variable
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PORT, 80);            //Set the port number
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 15); // times out after 15s
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
