CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION alternative

Hello.

I found that this line gives a warning on my installation of PHP because of security settings that I cannot change.

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);

I think the reason is because open_basedir is set.

My understanding is that this line says to follow a redirect if it occurs.

Is there another way to accomplish this, with open_basedir set?

Thanks!

I guess you will need to implement the follow/redirect in your php now due the security changes in php.

Check what curl returns, if you don't set that option. I guess you will need to parse the returned headers and start a new request with the new location.
