I would like to use cURL to not only send data parameters in HTTP POST but to also upload files with specific form name. How should I go about doing that ?
HTTP Post parameters:
userid = 12345
filecomment = This is an image file
HTTP File upload:
File location = /home/user1/Desktop/test.jpg
Form name for file = image (correspond to the $_FILES[‘image’] at the PHP side)
I figured part of the cURL command as follows:
curl -d "userid=1&filecomment=This is an image file" --data-binary @"/home/user1/Desktop/test.jpg" localhost/uploader.php
The problem I am getting is as follows:
Notice: Undefined index: image in /var/www/uploader.php
The problem is I am using $_FILES[‘image’] to pick up files in the PHP script.
How do I adjust my cURL commands accordingly ?
You need to use the
-F/--form <name=content> Specify HTTP multipart POST data (H)
curl -F "userid=1" -F "filecomment=This is an image file" -F "[email protected]/home/user1/Desktop/test.jpg" localhost/uploader.php
