I am trying to pull the JSON data for a Vine via the oEmbed API endpoint created for them. The request works fine in the browser and on my local Vagrant machine, but as soon as I run it on the server, it throws a 500 Internal Server Error.
$url = 'https://vine.co/oembed.json?url=http://vine.co/v/egXzgWMjrTj'; $res = file_get_contents($url); $json = json_decode($res);
I have already tried using a cURL request and passing in
stream_create_context() with headers into the
My example cURL request returning HTML formatted 500 Internal Server Error
$url = 'https://vine.co/oembed.json?url=http://vine.co/v/egXzgWMjrTj'; $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); $res = curl_exec($ch);
My ultimate goal is to get the thumbnail for the video and I am performing similar requests to Vimeo and Instagram without getting an Internal Server Error.
It is as if my Rackspace server has been blocked from making requests to their API, but this is the first time I have ever attempted to make requests to Vine.
