Must be an issue with quotes. Try something like this:

curl -i -H "Accept: application/json" -d '{"username": "divmesselibrary", "password": "677Sure1@"}'


curl -i -H "Accept: application/json" -d "{\"username\": \"divmesselibrary\", \"password\": \"677Sure1@\"}"

how can I convert this to php

Sory, did not understand the question. Maybe this article can help?

Tried the examples in the post you shared but still having issues.

Below is the code:
$data = array("username" => "xxx", "password" => "xxx");
$data_string = json_encode($data);

$ch = curl_init('http://openlibrary.org/account/login');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data_string);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(
'Content-Type: application/javascript',
'Content-Length: ' . strlen($data_string))


You have to exec the post. See also example here.


Also check for errors using curl_error.
