Dropbox CORS cannot download file

Dropbox CORS cannot download file

Scafol
Explorer | Level 3

I'm following this guide https://dropbox.github.io/dropbox-api-v2-explorer/#files_download_zip

I've problem when using api dropbox and want to get download files. first is about cors problem.

$ch = curl_init();curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/download_zip');curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);$headers = array();$headers[] = 'Authorization: Bearer myTokenAcess';$headers[] = 'Dropbox-Api-Arg: {\"path\":\"/myfolder/mysubfolder/mysubfolderagain\"}';curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);$result = curl_exec($ch);
if (curl_errno($ch)) {    echo 'Error:' . curl_error($ch);
}curl_close($ch);

and the results is

Error in call to API function "files/download": Bad HTTP "Content-Type" header: "application/x-www-form-urlencoded". Expecting one of "text/plain", "text/plain; charset=utf-8", "application/octet-stream", "application/octet-stream; charset=utf-8".

then I'm trying to add this line on header

$headers[] = 'Content-Type: application/octet-stream';

the results be

Error in call to API function "files/download": HTTP header "Dropbox-API-Arg": could not decode input as JSON

and then I'm trying to change drobox-api-arg line to

$headers[] = 'Dropbox-Api-Arg: json_decode({\"path\":\"/myfolder/mysubfolder/mysubfolderagain\"},TRUE)';

and the results still same like above

Error in call to API function "files/download": HTTP header "Dropbox-API-Arg": could not decode input as JSON

can someone help me to fix this?

I think you may have included the wrong link in the beginning. Could you link to the guide that you're following along with?
