I want to attach dynamically to published layer suing PHP. The sample code is as follows.but syle file is not changing. thnx in advance

// Initiate cURL session
$service = "http://localhost:8080/geoserver/"; // replace with your URL
$request = "rest/layers/b_1376999154"; // to add a new workspace

$url = $service . $request;
    echo  $url;
$ch = curl_init($url);

// Optional settings for debugging
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); //option to return string
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_STDERR, $logfh); // logs curl messages

//Required POST request settings
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, True);
$passwordStr = "admin:geoserver"; // replace with your username:password
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, $passwordStr);

//POST data
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER,
array("Content-type: application/xml"));

// $xmlStr1 = "polynew123polynew.sld "; $xmlStr= "polynew";

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $xmlStr);

//POST return code
$successCode = 201;

$buffer = curl_exec($ch); // Execute the curl request

// Check for errors and process results
$info = curl_getinfo($ch);
if ($info['http_code'] != $successCode) {
  $msgStr = "# Unsuccessful cURL request to ";
  $msgStr .= $url." [". $info['http_code']. "]\n";
  fwrite($logfh, $msgStr);
} else {
  $msgStr = "# Successful cURL request to ".$url."\n";
  fwrite($logfh, $msgStr);
fwrite($logfh, $buffer."\n");

curl_close($ch); // free resources if curl handle will not be reused
fclose($logfh);  // close logfile
