How do I authenticate with Jira to access the data with PHP

I'm new to using Jira and PHP, I wrote some code that I think should give me the information about my profile. But I need to authenticate first. How do I authenticate myself, or can I turn authentification off entirely? (Doesn't matter because it's only running locally for now)

This is my code so far:

$curl_handle=curl_init();
curl_setopt($curl_handle, CURLOPT_URL,'http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/user?username=JiraTest');
$query = curl_exec($curl_handle);
echo $query;

You can use basic authentication to access the API.
