Curl To Get A 200 Instead Of 308

i have a shell script to curl an url and test if it's ok. On web browser i have no problem, i have the content i'm waiting for.

but after running this shell :

#!/bin/bash

URL="www.mypersonalURL.com/"
STATUS=$(curl -s -o /dev/null -w "%{http_code}\n" $URL)
if [ $STATUS == 200 ] ; then
   echo "$URL is up, returned $STATUS"
else                     
   echo "$URL is not up, returned $STATUS"
fi

i always get a 308 code, what to do to make the redirection go forward and land on a 200 ?

Answer

You are not following the redirect in your curl statement. Add -L to your curl.

URL="www.mypersonalURL.com/"
STATUS=$(curl -L -s -o /dev/null -w "%{http_code}\n" $URL)
