Sending $_SESSION variables with cURLSending $_SESSION variables with cURL

Left QuoteIf you need to maintain a PHP session while using cURL, make sure you put the line

session_write_close();


before your cURL call. PHP usually locks the session, so will not allow the new URL access to it. Closing the session for writing means that the session is unlocked, and the new URL will be able to access it.

Your code should then look like this:

session_write_close();

$c = curl_init();
curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_COOKIE, "PHPSESSID=".$_COOKIE['PHPSESSID']);
curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/test.php");
$contents = curl_exec($c);
curl_close($c);


You should then maintain session state for both pages.Right Quote
