good chemistry is complicated,
and a little bit messy -LW
I realize you've marked this solved, but stratigery important :)
Yes I am printing the return of the request and this is the error output:
That is not a request. That is information you've already provided. Its like you pay for a drink, bartender says not enough, you still owe me 3 dollars, and you respond with, yes, I already gave you a napkin.
I dont understand what you're trying to do with that code snippet...I am trying to post a file to server for further processing.
I honestly thought you were trying to bake cookies, which is why I asked how much water you've added, because I wanted to make sure you were serious when you said I am trying to bake cookies and I added this much water, because that makes total cents. Total cents!
You should be using the credentials method...To be honest I thought this is better ... CURL...working just fine .. except upload ... I tried to use it but it did not worked :)
Credentials is convenient, shorter and easier to remember and use, than hand-enconding basic auth.
As a bonus, credentials doesn't send username/password unless the remote/target/destination server asks for authentication, and the domain/realm matches.
If credentials "isnt working", your domain/real doesn't match, or your server is broken by not asking for authentication.
Brute force is a terrible way to learn, sourcediving to copy/paste instead of taking 10min to understand 20 lines of code and the corresponding docs.
Anyway , if reject convenience, go big and reject the entire enchilada
When run this produces fruits
