Hey everyone,


I'm trying to send a JSON array to an API via HTTP POST, get a response and print it.


I tried using cURL to do so, but it doesn't seem to work. I simply get zero response, a blank page.


My request:



$data = array(

    "login" => "myLogin",

    "password" => "myPassword",

    "id" => "12345",

    "tag" => "test"



$json_data = json_encode($data);                                                                                   



$ch = curl_init('URL/api/mylogin');                                                                      

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $json_data);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(                                                                          

'Content-Type: application/json',                                                                                

'Content-Length: ' . strlen($json_data))                                                                       



$output = curl_exec($ch);


$result = json_decode($output);


echo $result;





The response I should be getting:


{"status": 200, "message": "OK", "login_key": "abcdefh532h235yh"}



any idea why I'm not getting any response?

(this works ok when I manually test it using a test REST client)
