Hello Friends,
I have just signed up for a free web hosting plan to test some of my codes online and make necessary changes to them as required.
Now, here's the problem. I have designed an online shopping website. I am using paypal sandbox to test it. i am using cURL to post the data to a page that contains a hidden form (to be posted to Paypal, generated using data received through cURL) and simple loading screen. Now it works fluid on my localhost (same configs), but when I test it on my web hosting server, the following error crept in:

ERROR: 405 - HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed.
The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method(HTTP verb) was used to attempt access.

A snippet of my cURL code is here :
  $ch = curl_init();
  curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, false);
  curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_POST, true);
  curl_setopt($ch,CURL_POSTFIELDS, $data);

The above mentioned code works perfectly on my localhost but not on web hosting server.

Please Help me regarding this.

I don't have we got quite complete information about your particular problem. Anyway, it looks like the method itself it a standard HTTP method: "POST", but this is the method most usually causing this problem. Here is a good explanation:[^].
