Curl POST: Complete Guide with Examples

To make a POST request with Curl, you can run the Curl command-line tool with the -d or --data command-line option and pass the data as the second argument. Curl will automatically select the HTTP POST method and application/x-www-form-urlencoded content type for the transmitted data. The Content-Type header indicates the data type in the request message's body. The server requires this header in order to interpret and process the data in the body of the POST message correctly. If you need to send a different content type with your Curl POST request, you can pass the content type with the -H command-line option. If you would like to send data to the server via another HTTP method, you can use the -X command-line option. Click Run to execute Curl POST Request Example online and see results.
