i want to write a script which post a form automatically. it is not a spammer! there is a picture field in form. i want to write the script with php and using curl() function. how can i implement file uploading? and is the php suitable for this purpose? i mean form posting?
To upload a file that's on your server, yes, curl can do the trick.
You'll want to use the
CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS option, passing it to the
curl_setopt function (quoting) :
The full data to post in a HTTP "POST" operation.
To post a file, prepend a filename with
@and use the full path.
Not tested, but I suppose that something like this should work :
$ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "http://www.yoursite.com/destination-of-upload.php"); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true); curl_setpopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, array( 'file' => '@/..../some-file.txt', // you'll need to adapt this // some other fields ? )); $result = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch);
