Create a php file which named index.php. And then add the following code into it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>PHP Send Push Notification To Android & IOS using Google FCM - Laratutorials.com</title>
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.3.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
</head>
<body>
 <div class="container">
    <br>
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-md-9">
        <form action="send-push-notification.php" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8">
          <div class="form-group">
            <label for="formGroupExampleInput">Device Type</label>
              <select class="form-control" id="device_type" name="device_type" required="">
              <option value="">Select Device type</option>
               
                    <option value="android">Android</option>
                    <option value="iphone">Iphone</option>
  
              </select>
          </div>           
          <div class="form-group">
            <label for="formGroupExampleInput">Notification Id</label>
            <input type="text" name="nId" class="form-control" id="formGroupExampleInput" placeholder="Please enter notification id" required="">
            
          </div> 
          <div class="form-group">
           <button type="submit" id="send_form" class="btn btn-success">Submit</button>
          </div>
        </form>
      </div>
    </div>
 
</div>
</body>
</html>

Step 3 –  Create firebase-fcm.php File

Create a file named firebasefcm.php and add the following code for push notification into it:

Note that, Please make sure to define the Firebase Server API Key to send a request to firebase.

<?php
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));
      }
      curl_close($ch);
  }
}   
?>

Step 4- Create send-push-notification.php File

Create send-notification.php file and add the following code into it:

<?php
//save crop image in php
if(isset($_POST["nId"]))
{
	$regId =$_POST["nId"];
	$dType =$_POST["device_type"];
	// INCLUDE YOUR FCM FILE
	include_once 'firebase-fcm.php';    
	$arrNotification= array();			
										
	$arrNotification["body"] ="PHP Push Notification";
	$arrNotification["title"] = "PHP Push Notification";
	$arrNotification["sound"] = "default";
	$arrNotification["type"] = 1;
	$fcm = new FCM();
	$result = $fcm->send_notification($regId, $arrNotification,$dType);
	print_r($result);
}
?>

Step 5-  Test This PHP Send Push Notification Application

Open your terminal and run the following command to quick run this application:

cd project_directory
php -S localhost:8000
