curl: provide user and password for apache .htaccess file
I am using cURL to test some RESTful APIs. Some of these APIs are served from an Apache machine, and protected with user/password combination using simple .httaccess files.
Is there a way to provide cURL with a username / password combination as arguments?
Use this curl option for the commandline
More details about this parameter can be found from here.
You can use this curl command for example:
curl -A "Mozilla" -L 'http://user:password@localhost/api/someapi.php'
