        "timezone": "Europe/London",
        "time_now": "2018-03-06 14:05:59"
im trying to parse in ph to get username and password.
I have tried lots of ways but no success?
example :
  $data = json_decode(file_get_contents($url), true);
        echo "id: ", $data['user_info']['username'];
        echo '<br>';
        echo "Name: ", $data['password'];
        echo '<br>';


$obj = json_decode($url2);
print $obj->{'username'};


$jfo = file_get_contents($json_file);
// read the title value
$title = $jfo->server_info->url;
// copy the posts array to a php var
$posts = $jfo->user_info->username;

no luck?do I have to use like a multilevel son method?

The first method should work. If it doesn't then $url is wrong or the returned JSON does not look like what you think it looks like.

Dump out $data to see what you're working with.


The second won't because json_decode does not accept URLs. It wants a JSON string. Someone didn't read the documentation.

The third won't because file_get_contents returns a string. It does not decode JSON. Someone didn't read the documentation.
