this is the first time I am trying to use this api, I am trying to use by php curl.
but I am getting results "HTTP Basic: Access denied"

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, 'GET');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER,array('Authorization: Basic ,'. base64_encode($token),'Accept:application/xml','Content-Type: application/xml' ) );

        $result  = curl_exec($ch);

        $status = curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);

help please

    Access denied means that you did not enter correct credential. Please look at this example, you might want to explore using curl first.

    Use example below, just replace api key with your own

    curl -u 4acc660ce98b9d38d7fea10705aa1ebd7d836fe0:X \
    -H "Accept: application/xml" \
    -H "Content-Type: application/xml" \
