  • Done! I hope you successfully Generate a Firebase Server Key

Step 2)

Create a file named fcm.php and add the below push notification php code. Be sure to replace the Your Firebase Server API Key Here with a proper one from the Google API’s Console page.

class FCM {
    function __construct() {
    * Sending Push Notification
  public function send_notification($registatoin_ids, $notification,$device_type) {
      $url = 'https://fcm.googleapis.com/fcm/send';
      if($device_type == "Android"){
            $fields = array(
                'to' => $registatoin_ids,
                'data' => $notification
      } else {
            $fields = array(
                'to' => $registatoin_ids,
                'notification' => $notification
      // Firebase API Key
      $headers = array('Authorization:key=Your Firebase 
Server API Key Here','Content-Type:application/json');
     // Open connection
      $ch = curl_init();
      // Set the url, number of POST vars, POST data
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
      // Disabling SSL Certificate support temporarly
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($fields));
      $result = curl_exec($ch);
      if ($result === FALSE) {
          die('Curl failed: ' . curl_error($ch));

Step 3)

Finally, create an index.php and add the below code. Before testing please replace Your Device Token with your real device token.

$regId ="Your Device Token";

include_once 'fcm.php';    

$notification = array();
$arrNotification= array();			
$arrData = array();											
$arrNotification["body"] ="Test by Ravi Sukhadia.";
$arrNotification["title"] = "TECHIBUCKET";
$arrNotification["sound"] = "default";
$arrNotification["type"] = 1;

$fcm = new FCM();
$result = $fcm->send_notification($regId, $arrNotification,"Android");

Step 4)

Send Push Notification to IOS Using PHP. You just need to change “Android” to “IOS” in your index.php file. like below…




$result=$fcm->send_notification($regId, $arrNotification,"IOS");

Step 5)

Now run your index.php file and you can get the notification to your devices.
