Sending data to third-party server then retrieving data back

Postby phpisfree » Fri Aug 31, 2012 12:16 am

Is this possible within PHP:

1. User fills in form on my site
2. The form submits the data from the form to a third-party server somewhere else on the net, essentially handing off the data to the third-party server somehow
3. Said third-party server does something with the data and then generates a numerical value to send back to my PHP script
4. My server/PHP script gets that numerical value/data for use in the script again

Is it doable in PHP? Does PHP have inbuilt functions to perform the above tasks? Would such a thing require tons of advanced code or is it relatively easy to do?

Thanks in advance for any help on the matter

Yes, this is doable in php. This neither that complicated nor does it require tonnes of code. Please read about php curl which will help you build this.
