View Full Version : Pass user and pw to web server via php

06-17-2006, 12:10 AM
I am posting to a web service that require user authentication. I simply clear security in the normal dialog box and all is well.

However I need to do this via a php script. I have everything ready to go other than trying to pass user and security to the site when posting.

How can I do this. The user is an actual email address and the a password.

I have tried the formation http://user@pw:www.postpage.com/post/ but since the user is an email address with the @ sign it seems to crap out. I haven't done this before so any help would be greatful.

Found it... had to use the following:

$headers .= "Authorization: Basic ".base64_encode($this->user.":".$this->pass)."\r\n";
