Subject RE: [users@httpd] php4 and form variables on apache
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2002 14:10:25 GMT
On a general note, I've found while developing and debugging PHP scripts it
helps to issue a "phpinfo();" as the last thing on the page.

It's been pretty useful, especially in identifying things like typos in form
variable names.
