"no json object could be decoded" From uploading an attachment to Confluence Edited

I want to use confluence rest api to upload my picture.

I read from [here](https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-server-rest-api/confluence-rest-api-examples)

Use

curl -v -S -u User:User -H 'X-Atlassian-Token: no-check' -F 'file=@/c/Users/User/a.jpg' -F 'comment=test' http://test.atlassian.net/wiki/display/API/upload | python -mjson.tool

But got the error message 

* timeout on name lookup is not supported
*   Trying 165.254.227.xxx...
* TCP_NODELAY set

I also try this

curl -T "C:\Users\User\Desktop\a.jpg" "https://test.atlassian.net/wiki/display/API/upload"

and got 

  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
                                 Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed

But the web (https://test.atlassian.net/wiki/display/API/upload) doesn't have the picture I uploaded..

I also try

curl -D- -u User:User -X POST -H "X-Atlassian-Token: nocheck" -F "file=@a.jpg" http://test.atlassian.net/rest/api/content/52408007/child/attachment

and got

Hi! It seems that your load balancer is configured to use https only. So every time you make a "http://xxx" request, the load balancer redirects you to "https://xxx". Can you please try to use https:// urls instead (for example https://test.atlassian.net/wiki/display/API/upload instead of http://test.atlassian.net/wiki/display/API/upload)? Or you may use "follow redirects" curl option

Thank you very much, Maksym!!! I think your post is the only place on the internet that actually answers this question! :)
