Create a droplet with PHP API v2

  • Posted October 4, 2014

Hi,

I am trying to create an droplet with php and I have read the https://developers.digitalocean.com/v2/#create-a-new-droplet on how it could be achieved but I haven’t really got it working yet.

My PHP code is as following:

$data = 'name=TestDroplet&region=ams3&size=512mb&image=449676322';
$create_droplet = curl_init();

curl_setopt_array(
	$create_droplet, 
	array(
		CURLOPT_USERAGENT => "METESTING",
		CURLOPT_POST => 0,
		CURLOPT_URL => 'https://api.digitalocean.com/v2/droplets',
		CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
		CURLOPT_HTTPHEADERS => array(
			'Authorization: Bearer ACCESS_TOKEN',
			'Content-Type: application/json',
			'Content-Length: ' . strlen($data)
		),
		CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => $data
	)
);

$create = curl_exec($create_droplet);
curl_close($create);

echo '<pre>';
print_r($create);
echo '</pre>';

I get this error --> {“id”:“unauthorized”,“message”:“Unable to authenticate you.”}.

I have checked the ACCESS_TOKEN and it is correct. I have even regenerated it several times and I have it on read, write support.

Does anyone know what I might be missing?

CURLOPT_HTTPHEADERS should be CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, see PHP: curl_setopt - Manual for the list of available options.

I have solved it!
