I am using PHP curl method to get a string type response. To create the request I use:

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FAILONERROR, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_BINARYTRANSFER, $data);

$response = curl_exec($ch);
$err = curl_error($ch);


if($response === false)
    throw new Exception(__CLASS__."::".__FUNCTION__."_".$err);
return $response;

Why I always receive a bool(true) response instead of the string I echo from the other side?




Since you already have

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

in your code. curl_exec should already returns the content of the page instead of a BOOL.

This is a snippet of a library I use. As pointed out this might not be needed but it helped me out once...

//The content - if true, will not download the contents
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_NOBODY, false);

Also it seems to have some bugs related to CURLOPT_NOBODY (which might explain why you have this issue):

When using Many to Many relationships with Eloquent, the resulting model automatically gets a pivot attribute assigned. Through that attribute you're able to access pivot table columns. Although by default there are only the keys in the pivot object. To get your columns in there too, you need to specify them when defining the relationship:

return $this->belongsToMany('Role')->withPivot('foo', 'bar');

Official Docs

If you need more help the task of configuring the relationships with Eloquent, let me know.


To query the price do this

$model->problems()->where('phone_problem', $problem->id)->first()->pivot->price

You should only call curl_close() when you know you're done with that particular handle, or if switching from its current state to a new one (ie: changing a ton of options via curl_setopt() would be faster by going from a clean new handle than your current "dirty" one.

The cookiejar/file options are only strictly necessary for maintaining cookies between seperate curl handles/invokations. Each one's independent of the others, so the cookie files are the only way to share between them.

You need to add the Curl libraries to the command line PHP.ini.

You can probably just copy the file C:wampbinapacheApache2.2.xbinphp.ini to c:wampbinphpphp5.3.10php.ini (adjust for the actual directories on your system).

As easy as:

substr(strrchr(rtrim($url, '/'), '/'), 1)
