I was hoping someone might be to help me with something.

I have figured out how to use cURL + PHP to login (and save my cookies) to myepisodes.com and then get data from different parts of the sites like the views.php part. What I can't figure out is why when I try to update watched/acquired data, it won't work.

Code:

<?php

// initialize curl
$curl = curl_init();
// return data, don't print
curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1 );
// follow re-directs
curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1 );

// post data
$post = array(
    'username' => 'imthenachoman',
    'password' => 'password',
    'u' => '',
    'action' => 'Login',
);


//login page url
curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://www.myepisodes.com/login.php' );
// send post data
curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_POST, 1 );
// post data
curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query( $post ) );
// save to cookie file
curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, 'test' );

$result = curl_exec( $curl );

// confirm logged in
if( preg_match( '/imthenachoman/i', $result ) )
{
    print 'logged in' . "\n";
}
else
{
    print 'not logged in' . "\n";
}

curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://www.myepisodes.com/shows.php?type=manage' );
curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_POST, 0 );

$result = curl_exec( $curl );

// this prints my shows list
print $result;

?>


Everything works fine up to this point.

Code:

<?

// build new post string to update show id = 3156, season = 2, episode = 6
// not including A3156-2-6, or V3156-2-6 so it should mark this episode as un-acquired
$post = array(
    'returnaddress' => '/views.php?',
    'checkboxes' => '3156-2-6',
    'action' => 'Save Status',
);

curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://myepisodes.com/views.php?type=save' );
curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query( $post ) );

$result = curl_exec( $curl );

// but this prints the login page and it doesn't update show status as expected
print $result;

curl_close( $curl );

?>


The last part prints the login page. :'(

Any ideas anyone?

If you get the login page again, then you are not preserving the cookie state correctly.

the problem is that the cookies are set during the header-location-change-response (status code 302 found)

most request-handler automatically get the linked webpage overwriting the cookies returned.

POST Request: login.php
Response: 302 Found myshows.php (+ login.php head -> cookies)
GET Request: myshows.php
Response: 200 (myshows.php head -> cookies & body data)[/quote]
