Curl install in cent os but not working


I have install CURL in cent OS.

I can see in my PHPINFO.

I also install LARAVEL.

But when i call curl return 0.

i have also setup firewall and allowed 80 and 443 port

 $html_brand = "";
                $ch = curl_init();

                $options = array(
                    CURLOPT_URL            => $html_brand,
                    CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
                    CURLOPT_HEADER         => true,
                    CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION => true,
                    CURLOPT_ENCODING       => "",
                    CURLOPT_AUTOREFERER    => true,
                    CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT => 120,
                    CURLOPT_TIMEOUT        => 120,
                    CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS      => 10,
                curl_setopt_array( $ch, $options );
                $response = curl_exec($ch); 
                $httpCode = curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);

                if ( $httpCode != 200 ){
                    echo "Return code is {$httpCode} \n"
                } else {
                    echo "<pre>".htmlspecialchars($response)."</pre>";

It’s “Return code is 0”;

how i resolved this issue.

I am sure issue from server.

Hi @sharmahemal811,

I tested your script and I can confirm I got a HttpCode 200.

Now, you were wondering why was executing


From the command line working but when you put it in a script it didn’t work. The curl you are using from the command line is actually very different than the one you are using in php scripts.

Basically, in your command line, you are using curl and in your php scripts, you are using an extension for php called php-curl. While the command-line curl comes installed by default, that is not the case for php-curl. As such all you need to do is install php-curl.

Depending on the php version installed (7, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4), you need to run the following command:

yum install php-curl


yum install php7.2-curl

Now, if you are using another php version just change the number 7.2 as you like.
