cURL returns bool(false) after execution -- Never happened before

Hello everyone.

I put together a cURL setup that was working about a week ago and now it is not.  I am wondering if I am doing something wrong to prompt this.  The script hits a URL that is supposed to upload some XML.  When I hit the URL manually, the update on the XML works fine.  However, when I try to hit it via cURL, I just get back a bool(false) when I do a var_dump on the $data variable.

Any ideas as to what could possibly be wrong?

            
$ch = curl_init();
$url = "link to whatever";
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 60);
$data = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);

Figured it out.  Found a very nice troubleshooting cURL script that helped me detect that the problem was with the URL :)
