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 non-CURL method is discussed 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.
