I used to be able to query the mtgox ticker with the following code:

Code:

  $c = curl_init();
  curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
  curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://mtgox.com/code/data/ticker.php');
  curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
  $result = curl_exec($c);
  curl_close($c);

2~3 hours ago that stopped working.  I tried saving the certificate so I could query as follows:

Code:
  $c = curl_init();
  curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
  curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://mtgox.com/code/data/ticker.php');
  curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, true);
  curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 2);
  curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_CAINFO, "./CAcerts/www.mtgox.com");
  $result = curl_exec($c);
  curl_close($c);

That didn't work either.  Did the API change somehow or is my code simply off?

Not working again for me Sad for about the past hour or so...

but wget works fine, so something with php/curl is causing the problem

Solved, MagicalTux must have changed something, because now USERAGENT is required.

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "curl/7.21.3 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.21.3 OpenSSL/0.9.8o zlib/1.2.3.4 libidn/1.18");

did the trick

Seeing how you have some experience with the mt. gox api, could you please have a look at my issue?

Same problem here. libcurl doesn't work, but plain curl does. Will try setting the useragent.

Yeah. For the C programmers out there:

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "Some bot.");

will do the trick.

Thanks so much for posting this! My services had bombed out today due to this change.

It would be nice for MagicalTux to create a developer mailing list or forum thread to keep us aware of this kind of thing...

That or a page describing the API would be awesome.

Thanks for the offer of a tip! here's an address: 1NgFb2LyyLvGaSHWasi2sYsn7iXDzDqzvb
