CURL PHP Crawler Returns Access Denied Error

Recommended Posts

My dad loves these frozen cheeseburgers from meijer so I was gonna write a little script I can run in cron that will check Meijer's website and txt or email or something if they go on sale.

Whenever I run the below script I get an Access Denied response from the server instead of the html for the cheesburger page.

I'm sure I just need a CURL option or something. 

Thank You in Advance

 



function curl_download($Url){ if (!function_exists('curl_init')){ die('cURL is not installed. Install and try again.'); } $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $Url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, true); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:47.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/47.0"); $output = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); return $output; } print curl_download("https://www.meijer.com/shop/en/frozen/frozen-meals/sandwiches/meijer-bacon-cheeseburger-4-9-oz/p/71373326278");

How about making your script readable? Use the code icon (<>) and select PHP.

Not surprised, browsed to the page and got put in a holding queue.

An Access Denied message suggests they have some sort of system in place to prevent the sort of thing you're doing.

Are you sure the website can't help you already? Does adding it to your favorites do anything special? Are the sales you're talking about the sort of thing that would be listed in their weekly ads?
