Use associative array instead of using querystring-style post fields.

We have faced some issues with posting form details using cURL module of php.

A form having file upload option was not posted correctly.
The content type is multi-part/form-data for this form.

The below line of code will set the post fields for the curl session.
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post_fiels);

The $post_fields can be specified either as querystring parameters or as an associative array.

Initially we had specified the $post_fields as querystring paramter as $post_fields="field1=value1&field2=value2";

But this approach didn't work for the multi-part/form-data forms.

It works fine after changing this code using an associative array as below.

$post_fields = array("field1" => "value1", "field2" => "value2");

Clearing Cache in phpBB forum

In my previous post I have explained about clearing cache in Gallery.

phpBB Forum is also using Cache for improving performance. So, most of your changes in the coding/database won't reflect immediately.

So, we need to clear the cache whenever we are making any changes in the forum.

For doing this, we should delete all the files available inside the cache folder in the forum.

Or, we can click "Run now" button available near "Purge the cache" under Resynchronise or reset statistics in ACP (Admin Control Panel)

Parsing webpage using php DOM.

PHP is having DOM functionality for parsing webpage by considering the HTML content of the webpage as XML data.

If you assign the $data with the HTML content of the webpage, below code will load the HTML content in DOM object.

$dom = new DOMDocument();

The "@" symbol before the second line of the code is required to suppress any warning message related to XML related errors in the HTML content.

xpath can be used to get the desired data.

For example, below code will extract all the "tr" tags in a html file.

$xpath = new DOMXPath($dom);
$tablerows = $xpath->evaluate("/html/body//tr");

Below code can be used if you want to get data from first "TD" within each row of the Table.

for ($i =1; $i < $tablerows->length; $i++)

$singlerow = $tablerows->item($i);

$tablecells= $singlerow->getElementsByTagName("td");

Setting UserAgent for php curl session to avoid 500 Internal Server Error

We are using below function for getting webpage content using curl module of php.

function getmethod_request($ch,$ckfile,$urlValue)

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, $ckfile); //The name of the file containing the cookie data. The cookie file can be in Netscape format, or just plain HTTP-style headers dumped into a file.
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$urlValue); // The URL to fetch. This can also be set when initializing a session with curl_init().
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, $ckfile); // The name of a file to save all internal cookies to when the connection closes.
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER,1); // TRUE to include the header in the output.
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_AUTOREFERER,1); // TRUE to automatically set the Referer: field in requests where it follows a Location: redirect.
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1); // TRUE to return the transfer as a string of the return value of curl_exec() instead of outputting it out directly.
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST,0); //TRUE to do a regular HTTP POST. This POST is the normal application/x-www-form-urlencoded kind, most commonly used by HTML forms.
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION,1);
return $data = curl_exec($ch);


It worked fine for many websites.

But it started giving "500 Internal Server Error" message when using it for one specific website.

I came to know that some web servers will block the requests from non-identified user-agents (browsers).

We have resolved this issue by including below lines in the function for spoofing it as FireFox 2.0.

$useragent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061204 Firefox/";
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, $useragent);

Removing Last Character in a String

In PHP, we will be requiring to remove the last Character from a string variable.

For example, consider below query.

select * from employees where employee_id in (1,2,5,7)

Assume that the employee_id values 1,2,5,7 should be dynamically collected from a webpage provided with checkboxes to select some employees from a list of employees.

Using foreach loop we can create this employee_id string. But it will look like as below

You can note the last comma.

Error will be thrown if we use this as it is

select * from employees where employee_id in ($employee_id_string)

In this case we need to remove this last comma.

It can be easily done by below code.
