Using CURL Get HTTP Status Code Of A URL

Jul 17, 2005

I would like to get the HTTP status code of a URL using PHP. I think CURL is the way to go but I can't see how to do it. I see I can use curl_getinfo on the CURL session after I've curl_exec'ed it but I can't see what options I should set to get CURL to only get the HTTP status code and not retrieve the data at the URL.

Parsing HTTP Status Code?

Sep 18, 2009

I am using PHP to parse the numeric portion of the HTTP status code response. Given a standard "HTTP/1.1 200 OK" response, I'd use:

$data = explode(' ', "HTTP/1.1 200 OK");
$code = $data[1];

I'm not an expert on HTTP. Would I ever encounter a response where the code is not at the position of $data[1] as in the above example? I just want to be sure that this method of delimiting the response code will always work for any response.

Http Status Code 404 - Related To 404

Jan 5, 2010

So I'm using a single entry point found in a previous question of mine: [URL] We all know what 404 errors is, so no explanation needed there. However, when using the single entry point index.php?page=pokemon, it doesn't go to the 404 page when trying to access a page that is non-existent. So how can I solve this problem which would make it more user friendly and direct the visitors to my 404 page so they won't see all the PHP errors?

Http Status Code Is Use To Tell The Client The Session Has Timed Out?

Oct 31, 2009

In a webpage, it uses YUI connection manager/datasource to send AJAX requests to the server, if the session (which contains the info on whether the user has been authenticated) has already timed out, those ajax responses that can only be viewed by authenticated users should return an http status code, telling the client that the session has already timed out, then the client either simply redirects him to the login page or asks him if he wants to extend the session.My question is that, in this situation, what http status code is the most appropriate to tell the client the session has timed out?

Fetch The Contents Of A Page No Matter What HTTP Status Code?

Aug 13, 2010

I'm currently using file_get_contents() to fetch the contents of a page which is sort of like an Authentication API. It works great for the default system which most people use (which just uses the default HTTP/1.1 200 status code), but some people send relevant HTTP status codes for different errors. For example 401 PASSWORD_FAIL, in which case it would set the HTTP status to 401 and output 'PASSWORD_FAIL' to the page, which is the part I want to get. But the 401 status code causes file_get_contents() to error out and not do anything. What is the simplest PHP function I can use to get the contents of the page and just ignore the HTTP status code?

Correct HTTP Status Code To Send When A Site Is Down For Maintenance?

May 7, 2010

Is there a HTTP status code to tell Google (and others) to go away, index me again later? Basically, one that semantically tells clients that the site is down for maintenance?

The ones I have considered are

304 => Not modified
307 => Temporary redirect
410 => Gone
503 => Service Unavailable

I'm leaning towards the last one, but was just curious as to which one was proper choice.

Is this the correct way to send it with PHP?

header('Status: 503 Service Unavailable');

Turn Off Default HTTP Status Code Errors In Zend Server?

Mar 17, 2010

Every time I return some status code in my PHP code, Zend Server gives me following error appended on the bottom of my website (with the message of HTTP code I returned). So for example, if I return 401, it gives me another 401 error appended to my 401 page:

Is there any way to turn it off? I use Zend Server Community Edition 5.0 with PHP 5.2.


It seems to be default Apache error handling. Is there a way to disable it? Preferably without having my own error pages.


I tried to edit my .htaccess with ErrorDocument directives. It still gives me my error page (blank page) + Apache error (like on screenshot above).

This isn't happening with ZendServer 4 I have on server. I use ZendServer 5 on localhost tho. Is it possible to be some kind of bug or misconfiguration from Zend side?


(In all test cases I return 401)

When I use default ZendServer configuration + ErrorDocument directives in .htaccess, I get my own error page + Apache error page appended bellow it.

When I use default ZendServer configuration + disable my own ErrorDocument directives, I get just Apache error page.

When I change Apache error pages to blank files + use my own ErrorDocument directives, I get the desired behavior, however errors 404 still append default Apache errors bellow my own.

Apache - Make Set HTTP Status Code To 500 Automatically In Case Of Any Error Condition?

Jun 19, 2010

I am running Apache 2.2.15 with PHP 5.3.2, 'display_errors' disabled, 'display_startup_errors' disabled, 'log_errors' enabled. At my setup (so I consider it a norm), PHP aborts on fatal errors, which is good, and sets HTTP status code to 500. Fatal errors include E_ERROR, E_PARSE, E_CORE_ERROR, E_COMPILE_ERROR, E_USER_ERROR and, probably, E_RECOVERABLE_ERROR (cannot trigger it myself, so can't easily check what happens). I think it is a good idea that it does set the code to 500, because I think it is the right thing to do - obviously if your script contains syntax errors and/or fails to do what is supposed to do at runtime, it is a server error, if we consider PHP part of the server.

Now, here is the important part: Anyway, I have now installed XDebug to track errors better, but I can see that now, no matter the error, even though the script aborts as before on fatal errors, the HTTP status code is always 200. This breaks my client that 'talks' to Apache/PHP via HTTP :|

Also, setting display_errors to On/1, makes PHP no longer set HTTP status code to 500 and exhibits exactly the same behavior as with XDebug above. I am very much dependent on reliable status code behavior here, and this all leads me to believe it's some kind of fluke or random like weather.. or am I missing something?[URL]..

For my part, I have disabled XDebug, seeing as it is what causes the bad behavior in the first place. I only used it for stack tracing anyway, and now use a custom error handler for that instead. Also, the linked article is from 2008, apparently PHP does set HTTP status code to 500 automatically these days. It does so here. Without XDebug, of course.

Send A Status Code In PHP Without Maintaining An Array Of Status Names?

Jan 25, 2011

All I want to do, is send a 404 status code from PHP - but in a generic fashion. Both Router::statusCode(404) and Router::statusCode(403) should work, as well as any other valid HTTP status code
I do know, that you can specify a status code as third parameter to header. Sadly this only works if you specify a string. Thus calling header('', false, 404) does not work.Furthermore I know, that one can send a status code via a header call with a status line: header('HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found')But to do this I have to maintain an array of reason phrases (Not Found) for all status codes (404). I don't like the idea of this, as it somehow is a duplication of what PHP already does itself (for the third header parameter).So, my question is: Is there any simple and clean way to send a status code in PHP?

Http Status Code 500 - Files On The Server Generated 500 "Internal Server Error"

Jun 27, 2011

Everything was working fine till last morning (12 hours ago). But now each of PHP page is showing "500 Internal Server Error". Please look at this link It's an WordPress site. I have thought it's about WordPress.

But I have a sub-domain, where there is a single PHP file -, which gets same error. Though at the same location, there is a HTML file, which works fine. To test if any syntax in PHP page causes that error, I have placed a "die('some message')" at the first line of that "index.php" file, but it shows same error. There is no HTAccess in that sub-domain.

Everything was working - suddenly all PHP stopped, I can't get the problem. Can anyone help?

HTTP Status For Functional Redirect?

Nov 7, 2008

Right now we've got web pages that show UI elements, and web pages that just process form submissions, and then redirect back to the UI pages. They do this using PHP's header() function:

header("Location: /other_page.php");

This causes a 302 Found response to be sent; according to the HTTP 1.1 spec, 302 is for cases where "The requested resource resides temporarily under a different URI." [HTTP 1.1 spec]

Functionally, this is fine, but it doens't seem like this is the proper status code for what we're doing. It looks like 303 ("See Other") is the appropriate status here, so I'm wondering if there's any reason not to use it. We'd have to be more explicit in our use of header(), since we'd have to specify that status line rather than just a Location: field.

The advantage for that is we only need to check the header response and no need to check the body.

Getting HTTP Status Codes For Web Pages Through Proxy

Apr 19, 2006

I'm having a terrible time trying to get HTTP status codes from web pages (404, 200, 301, etc.). I think a big part of the problem is that we're behind a proxy.

How would I modify the following code examples to connect through a proxy in order to get the status code?

function http_file_status($url, $followRedirects = true)
$url_parsed = parse_url($url);
if (!@$url_parsed['scheme']) $url_parsed = parse_url('http://'.$url);
if(!@$port) $port = 80;
if(!@$path) $path = '/'
if(@$query) $path .= '?'.$query;
$out = "HEAD $path HTTP/1.1";
$out .= "Host: $host";
$out .= "Connection: Close";
if(!$fp = @fsockopen($host, $port, $es, $en, 5)){
return false;
fwrite($fp, $out);
while (!feof($fp)) {
$s = fgets($fp, 128);
if(($followRedirects) && (preg_match('/^Location:/i', $s) != false)){
return http_file_status(trim(preg_replace("/Location:/i", "", $s)));
if(preg_match('@HTTP[/]1[.][01x][s]{1,}([1-5][01][0-9])[s].*$@', $s, $matches))
$status = $matches[1];
return $status;
return false;


header("Content-Type: text/plain");
$host = "";
$port = 80;

$post = "HEAD / HTTP/1.1";
$post .= "Host:";
$post .= "User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060308 Firefox/";
$post .= "Keep-Alive: 200";
$post .= "Connection: keep-alive";
$sock = fsockopen($host, $port, $errno, $errstr, 20.0);
fwrite($sock, $post, strlen($post));

while (!feof($sock)){
echo fgets($sock);

Parsing HTTP Status Codes For Interacting With API?

Oct 13, 2010

I'm building a script in PHP to interact with an API and need to be able to parse the HTTP status code the API is giving me. For the most part, it gives one of the following responses:

HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
HTTP/1.1 410 Gone

I need to be able to recognize which response is being given, and, if its 401 or 410, to keep going, but, if it's 401 or 403, to keep track and to shut down the script after a few in a row (because I've exceeded my call limit for the day). My code is pretty simple:

for($i = $start;$i < $end;$i++)
// construct the API url
$url = $base_url.$i.$end_url;


My problem is I don't know what to put in the 'else' loop. I'm using the CodeIgniter framework, if anyone knows of any shortcuts to use. Also, I'm open to using cURL, but never have before.

Fetch HTTP Response Header/redirect Status?

Aug 31, 2009

I am currently working on a PHP-based Tool to monitor a rather large number of URLs and their redirect status. I have spent quite some time on finding the best way to fetch the content of the HTTP response headers to extract the current redirect code and location. This is how it's done at the moment:

$resource = fopen( $url, 'r' );
$metadata = stream_get_meta_data( $resource );
$metadata = $metadata['wrapper_data'];
// Looping through the array to find the necessary fields

This works on 95% of the URLs I'm monitoring. For a few more I have solved it by parsing the actual HTML the website returns before the redirect is executed since it contained something like "This website has been moved here". This does not seem to be a very robust solution, but it helped in a few cases. This still leaves me with a number of URLs I can not check automatically. Tools like Ask Apache HTTP Headers Tool seem to be more reliable and I was wondering what could be a better way to obtain the redirect information?

Set Response Status Code?

May 28, 2011

I have an API call for which I need to be able to run some checks and potentially return various status codes. I don't need custom views or anything, I just need to return the proper code. If the user hasn't passed proper credentials, I need to return a 401 status. If they haven't sent a supported request format, I need to return a 400 status.

Because it's an API, all I really want to do is set the response status and exit with a simple, stupid message about why the request failed (probably using a exit). Just enough to get the job done, but I haven't been able to get this to work right. I've tried using PHP's header() and Cake's $this->header() (this is all in the controller), but although I get the exit message, the header shows a 200 OK status.

Using the code below, I get the message, but the header isn't set. What am I missing?

if( !$this->auth_api() ) {
header( '401 Not Authorized' );
exit( 'Not authorized' );
