    Apologies for site issues

    I apologize for the constant site downage. There is currently some technical difficulties going on right now. We are working on trying to resolve it, so we ask that you all hold tight and bare with us during this time.

    Thank you

    Yeah, someone should change this thread's title so as to avoid that sort of confusion.

    Hi guys,
    The fix to your problem is very simple. PSNTL is checking the user agent for the request and if it isn't a browser they are giving a 403 error.

    For example:
    function curl_download($Url){
    if (!function_exists('curl_init')){
    die('cURL is not installed. Install and try again.');
    }
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $Url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    $output = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    return $output;
    }
    print curl_download('http://psntrophyleaders.com/games');


    This code above returns a 403 error when trying to scrape the data.
    But if you use this:

    function curl_download($Url){
    if (!function_exists('curl_init')){
    die('cURL is not installed. Install and try again.');
    }
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.12) Gecko/20101026 Firefox/3.6.12');
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $Url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    $output = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    return $output;
    }
    print curl_download('http://psntrophyleaders.com/games');


    It gets the data with no error. Note the part in bold to spoof the useragent. Obviously your code will be differant to this and you may not use PHP at all but this still shows why your getting the error. Your coder will understand. You just need to spoof the useragent when doing the request. My C++ program stopped working the same day as your site and spoofing the useragent fixed it so I'm 99% sure it's the same for your site. I apologise if you already knew this and you just haven't had time to implement your fix. Was just bored and figured I'd put that out there for you incase it could help.
