Hi,

I am busy on my school homework right now, but I will attempt to post a solution sometime this weekend if you don't get a response until that time.

Before making my promise a final one, can you please tell us how these information are used?

$method = 'ipinfo/';
$apikey = '100.hva7qa7893wzcsc3x8dk';
$secret = 'uHZVvYK5';

Does the site needs log in?
Do you need to validate?

those questions are really important, because cURL will not work or not allowed to access those info.

Another hint! Did you ever try to use cookiejar on your cURL to make it work?

hey when you will post the solution for me :) still waiting

hits ::
just copy above code
run it
its will display data if you see the source code its xml data which is returned from servers
so you have to just parse return xml data ($data) and assign them to separate variables like $ip,$isp,$org etc

Nobody here is going to do your work for you and you shouldn't be waiting on people to solve your issue.

Start off here and learn this class well:

Check for SimpleXML library: http://www.php.net/manual/en/simplexml.examples-basic.php
You can start with $data:

$a = new SimpleXMLElement($data);
print_r($a);

So you can display the array and display the elements. Bye :)

it display nothing already i tried to use other xml functions too but it display nothing as output in array.. i do not know why .... :(

here ix xml data which we got from api

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<?php
$ip_info = new SimpleXMLElement($data);
echo $ip_info->ipinfo->ip_type;
?>

i try to extract the ipinfo from it but failed :(

You can set an url as first parameter:

<?php
$xml = new SimpleXMLElement('file.xml',false,true); # try also with $data
print_r($xml);
?>

As second paramenter you can set these constants: http://php.net/manual/en/libxml.constants.php
Third paramenter is needed to declare source (in first parameter) as a file and not data strings like something you get from file_get_contents(). Your output should be:
