Problem reading data from


echo "Start<br>";

$data = "smv";
$url = "";
$optional_headers = null;

  $params = array('http' => array(
              'method' => 'POST',
              'reason' => $data

if ($optional_headers !== null) {

	$params['http']['header'] = $optional_headers;


$ctx = stream_context_create($params);

$fp = @fopen($url, 'rb', false, $ctx);

if (!$fp) {

	echo "Problem with $url<br>";


$response = @stream_get_contents($fp);

if ($response === false) {

	echo "Problem reading data from $url<br>";
