Are you saying that you set a URL that is different than what libcurl actually

But this mailing list is for libcurl and I assume you ask about libcurl
features and problems. If you want PHP/CURL hints and advice, this is not the
proper place.

You should first make sure that this is not a PHP/CURL issue, and if things
indicate this is a true libcurl issue we should convert your PHP/CURL code to
plain libcurl code so that we can chase the bug(s) without layering it away.

Unfortunately, I know no suitable place to redirect you to for that kind of
support. The curl-and-php mailing list seems to not be visited by any PHP team
members and on the generic PHP lists they seem to be mostly PHP/CURL ignorant.
You are basically left on your own, I'd say.

PHP/CURL[*] is a binding for PHP that is using libcurl. And the PHP/CURL
binding is written and maintained by the PHP team, not by the curl project.

libcurl is the underlying library that PHP/CURL uses.

If you use curl-functions in PHP, you use PHP/CURL.

[*] = The actual name PHP/CURL is what I call the binding. The PHP team calls
       it 'CURL' but I find that grossly misleading and confusing, why I've
       decided to use the name PHP/CURL for it.
