How do I send a POST request using PHP?

There are two options for sending POST requests from PHP: using the built-in Curl library and the CURL-less method that uses PHP's native streaming functions. In this PHP POST request example, we are sending a POST request using the Curl library. The CURL-less method is provided with detailed explanations at the end of the article. The Content-Type: application/json request header specifies the data type in the POST message body, and the Accept: application/json header tells the server that the PHP client is expecting JSON in response to our POST request. Click Execute to run the PHP POST Request Example online and see the result.
