XML + Auth

Recommended Posts


im trying to access an xml file on a remote server that requires auth before allowing access. i was given the following code as an example:

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "/tmp/cookieFileName");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"https://myeve.eve-online.com/login.asp");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "username=*******&password=********&Check=OK");

ob_start(); // prevent any output
curl_exec ($ch); // execute the curl command
ob_end_clean(); // stop preventing output

curl_close ($ch);

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "/tmp/cookieFileName");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"http://myeve.eve-online.com/character/xml2.asp?characterID=679467044");

$buf2 = curl_exec ($ch);

curl_close ($ch);
header("Content-Type: text/xml");
echo $buf2;

I have no idea how to get this working tho, or even if it works, i simply want the xml data from the address in the code above to be passed on to a parser.

any help on this wud be appreciated.
