Hi all!

I am trying to post from a form to an URL, using cURL. I have managed to do the posting bit, and my data is coming thew to the URL just like I wanted. Here is my code:


//create array of data to be posted
$post_data['Application.Ssn'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Not_Living_Legal_Address'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Cellphone'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Telephone'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Email'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Marital_Status'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Children_Count'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Housing'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Tendency'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Employment'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Employer'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Hired_From'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Net_Income'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Total_Debt'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Loans_Debt'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Loans_Count'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Total_Debt_Expenses'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Application_Type'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Credit_Limit_Applied'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.SecretAnswer'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.SecretQuestion'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Heard_About_Us'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.PPI'] = 'value';
$post_data['Application.Notes'] = 'value';
$post_data['Agreement'] = 'value';

//traverse array and prepare data for posting (key1=value1)
foreach ( $post_data as $key => $value) {
    $post_items[] = $key . '=' . $value;

//create the final string to be posted using implode()
$post_string = implode ('&', $post_items);

//create cURL connection
$curl_connection = 

//set options
curl_setopt($curl_connection, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 30);
curl_setopt($curl_connection, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 
  "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)");
curl_setopt($curl_connection, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($curl_connection, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

//set data to be posted
curl_setopt($curl_connection, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post_string);

//perform our request
$result = curl_exec($curl_connection);

//show information regarding the request
echo curl_errno($curl_connection) . '-' . 

$Response = curl_exec($curl_connection);

    return $Response;


Since this is a form the client submitting it needs to get a response right away. The server is sending a response like this, {"Success":false,"Url":null,"Messages":["Sorry, declined"]}, if the application is being declined. So my question is, how can I get this message threw to the client that have submitted the form? I am very new to this type of coding, so forgive me if my question is not well formulated or missing information.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Can you add a brief description on how you solved it.
