Whenever you require to download file or image from URL using php curl. then you can see that example. we can download image or file from given url and save in over local server. you can do that using get_file_contents() in php too, but i think it is good if you are doing that using PHP curl. let's see following example :


$url = '';

$curlCh = curl_init();

curl_setopt($curlCh, CURLOPT_URL, $url);

curl_setopt($curlCh, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

curl_setopt($curlCh, CURLOPT_SSLVERSION,3);

$curlData = curl_exec ($curlCh);

curl_close ($curlCh);

$downloadPath = "upload/flower10.jpg";

$file = fopen($downloadPath, "w+");

fputs($file, $curlData);
