There is a CSV file in Dropbox.
How to read it with php?
The php code is as follows,
$url = "https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/download?authorization=Bearer%20<TOKEN>&arg=%7B%22path%22%3A%...";
$fileData=fopen($url,'r');

Is the $url wrong?

That URL structure looks right for accessing file data via /2/files/download using a GET request.

What exactly isn't working for you? What error or unexpected output are you getting?

I use browser to try this url, but got ERR_INVALID_RESPONSE.
Is there anything wrong with the url?

My sample, using your structure but plugging in my own access token, is working for me in Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

What browser are you using?

If you check using the developer tools, what's the actual HTTP response that you get?
Need more support?
