[wp-hackers] Help w/ cURL and Google Maps

Thanks for the tip, it got me a little farther.  I am using the following:

    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url) ;
    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1) ;
    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_PROXYTYPE, CURLPROXY_HTTP) ;
    curl_setopt ($ch,
CURLOPT_PROXY,"http://proxy.shr.secureserver.net:3128") ;
    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 120) 

Now when I run it I get an incomplete response from the server when compared
to my development environment. GoDaddy finally got back to me and even
though cURL is enabled in their PHP environment, GoDaddy says they don't
support cURL on a Windows server (which is what I am working with).

It's close, so close.

Using cURL with GoDaddy hosting requires that you set a proxy. Adding
these 3 lines should fix this:

curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY,"http://proxy.shr.secureserver.net:3128");
