send fax using curl

Hi, I am trying to send fax using curl. I can send it via my localhost. But when I am uploading code to server and try to send it with attachment it is showing some error like:
                    [errorCode] => MSG-356
                    [message] => Either filename or content type should be specified, attachment [1]: []
                    [attachmentFileName] =>
                    [attachmentNumber] => 1.

I think It has some error in following part of code:

 $file_name_with_full_path = ('public/pdf/'.$item[0]['item_id'].'-'.$random_number.' _doc.pdf');
                
                            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, array(
                            'username'      => '+123456789',
                            'password'      => "abc@1234",
                            'to'     => '+12457899',
                            'from'=>'+795454663',
                            'attachment'    => '@'.$file_name_with_full_path,
                            'contentType'=>'application/pdf',
                          
                        ));

First of all, is there any reason you don't want to use our SDKs? Using our SDKs is the most convenient way to access RingCentral platform and call the APIs. What programming language do you use? https://github.com/ringcentral

If you still want to write from scratch using curl, see the example from the API explorer  https://developer.ringcentral.com/api-reference#Fax-sendFaxMessage

I don't think it is a localhost/server issue.

The files you are trying to send on server is different from the one on localhost. Could you please double check.

If you have issue with the PHP SDK:  https://github.com/ringcentral/ringcentral-php could you please create a GitHub issue there?

Sir I triple checked. Code is same. Could you please check my code and error. I thing there is some permission issue of curl on server. Curl is not able to fetch the file from path.

First of all, what issue did you face when you use the RingCentral SDK to get authentication? If your app is password flow, check out this tutorial

Secondly, if your code works well on localhost, your code to call RingCentral fax endpoint must be correct. Now, if it does not work on your remote server and the complaint is about the attachment, the problem is most likely with your file on the server or as you said, some "permission" issue setting for your server that I cannot be aware of.

This is not a RingCentral API problem but I guess our server cannot reach the attachment file with the specified path realpath('/var/www/html/ pdf2-199167_doc.pdf'). Can you put the file somewhere that it could be accessible e.g. from the browser and use that link.

I strongly recommend you to try the SDK again.
