PHP File Upload using cURL; Uploading a file using cURL just like a form POST

Upload a file using PHP and cURL.

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true);  // return web page string
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER => false);         // don't return headers
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION => false); // follow redirects
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT => 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1)');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, 'POST');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, '');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, array( 'image' => '@' . getcwd() . '/image.jpg',));
echo curl_exec($ch);

NOTE: Avoid using curl_setopt_array(). Use curl_setopt() instead.

      using curl_setopt() lets you know which option failed to be set
