When I post from a form I have no trouble having action=edit work.

But when I send the same $postdata through a curl script I get: error code="badtoken".


$url = "http://localhost:8888/hosted/hum211/api.php?action=edit";
$ch = curl_init();    // initialize curl handle
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url); // set url to post to
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FAILONERROR, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);// allow redirects
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1); // return into a variable
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 3); // times out after 4s
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1); // set POST method
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $qstr); // add POST fields
$result = curl_exec($ch); // run the whole process
echo $result;

To check I tried sending both not to api.php but to some php that would just display the postfilelds. They look exactly alike.

Not sure what to do next.
