Php – Detecting request type in PHP (GET, POST, PUT or DELETE)

httpphprequest

How can I detect which request type was used (GET, POST, PUT or DELETE) in PHP?

Best Solution

By using

$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']

Example

if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] === 'POST') {
     // The request is using the POST method
}

For more details please see the documentation for the $_SERVER variable.
