linux PHP - forum post function help

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I'm working on a script that helps to post some notifications on forums.

The goal is to have a script that takes a local file and posts it with some information on FA forum.

I have a login / password / forum post but i struggle a bit to find a clean solution.


I'm not very experienced in PHP and wanted to ask if someone can give me some tips how to program it.

looked a bit into cURL



For the Forum login:

function login($url,$data){
    $fp = fopen("cookie.txt", "w");
    $login = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "cookie.txt");
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "cookie.txt");
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 40000);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, TRUE);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, TRUE);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_POST, TRUE);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
    return curl_exec ($login);
    curl_close ($login);


For posting the data:

function post_data($site,$data){
    $datapost = curl_init();
        $headers = array("Expect:");
    curl_setopt($datapost, CURLOPT_URL, $site);
        curl_setopt($datapost, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 40000);
    curl_setopt($datapost, CURLOPT_HEADER, TRUE);
        curl_setopt($datapost, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
    curl_setopt($datapost, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']);
    curl_setopt($datapost, CURLOPT_POST, TRUE);
    curl_setopt($datapost, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
        curl_setopt($datapost, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "cookie.txt");
    return curl_exec ($datapost);
    curl_close ($datapost);
