(HTTP/HTTPS) If the server reports that the requested page has moved to a different location
(indicated with a Location: header and a 3XX response code), this option will make curl redo the
request on the new place. If used together with -i, --include or -I, --head, headers from all
requested pages will be shown. When authentication is used, curl only sends its credentials to the
initial host. If a redirect takes curl to a different host, it won't be able to intercept the
user+password. See also --location-trusted on how to change this. You can limit the amount of
redirects to follow by using the --max-redirs option.
When curl follows a redirect and the request is not a plain GET (for example POST or PUT), it will
do the following request with a GET if the HTTP response was 301, 302, or 303. If the response
code was any other 3xx code, curl will re-send the following request using the same unmodified
-X, --request <command>
(HTTP) Specifies a custom request method to use when communicating with the HTTP server. The
specified request will be used instead of the method otherwise used (which defaults to GET). Read
the HTTP 1.1 specification for details and explanations. Common additional HTTP requests include
PUT and DELETE, but related technologies like WebDAV offers PROPFIND, COPY, MOVE and more.
(FTP) Specifies a custom FTP command to use instead of LIST when doing file lists with FTP.
If this option is used several times, the last one will be used.
