    I suppose it stops some casual "script kiddie" novices who might try to access it via file_get_contents() or such, but it certainly won't stop any serious, semi-skilled web coder.

    Yea you're right.
    It nearly stopped me in getting my server-to-server curl post to work!

    Perhaps you are a novice in this area, but you were serious enough to work on finding a solution.

    Yup I'm a complete novice but it did occur to me that such a check might be made

    Earlier post:
    Is it possible that the database surver knows that the post is been made by a server opposed to a browser (and has a problem with this) as when I post this using a HTML form, everything works fine!

    If so, is there any way of making the post appear as if it has originated from a browser?
    If it wasn't for Mindzai though, it probably would have took me all day to figure out how to change the user agent!

    Lucky guess

    Re the encrypted transfer, you can use SSL/TLS with cURL if the server has a valid CA certificate. The process is explained well here.

    Mindzai beat me to it. I was gonna tell you about CURLOPT_USERAGENT because I ran into that problem myself with a site I was accessing by cURL.

    I'm glad you got it working.

    Thanks
    Glad I'm not the only person to have that problem!
