Issuing an http request via c

I have to write a c program that should issue an HTTP GET request such as the following: (The script updates a row
in the database table)

I tried using socket for that on port 80.
I used functions:
1) sockfd = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0)
2) connect(sockfd, (struct sockaddr *)&dest_addr, sizeof(struct
sizeof(struct sockaddr))
3) bytes_sent = send(sockfd, msg, len, 0) ; // msg contains the http
headers get request

The problem is that the script doesn't work. I tried many variations
of http header get request with no success.
