Use linkedin api to fetch contact information in php ..

First Register your domain for linkedin api .

Then get your API_KEY, API_SECRET REDIRECT_URI , SCOPE ...

Run the script .. Njoy :)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<?php

// Change these
define('API_KEY',      ' '          );  /*put API_KEY between '  ' */
define('API_SECRET',   ' '      ); /*put between API_SECRET '  '*/
define('REDIRECT_URI', ' '); /*put REDIRECT_URI between '  '*/
define('SCOPE',        ' '     ); /*put Scope between '  '*/


session_name('linkedin');
session_start();
$_SESSION['state']="India" // Name the country you live in
;
// OAuth 2 Control Flow
if (isset($_GET['error'])) {
    // LinkedIn returned an error
    print $_GET['error'] . ': ' . $_GET['error_description'];
    exit;
} elseif (isset($_GET['code'])) {
    // User authorized your application
    if ($_SESSION['state'] == "India") {
        // Get token so you can make API calls
        getAccessToken();
    } else {
        // CSRF attack? Or did you mix up your states?
        exit;
    }
} else {

        $_SESSION = array();

        // Start authorization process
        getAuthorizationCode();
    }
}

// Congratulations! You have a valid token. Now fetch your profile by defining field you wanted
