Subject [users@httpd] Strange Problem: libphp4 breaks POSTing to CGIs
Date Thu, 23 Jan 2003 15:10:32 GMT
Hi all,

I've been having a problem for a couple of months which I have been 
unable to figure out wherein GET requests to CGIs work fine, but POST 
requests to CGIs, while they get through, don't have any of the POST 
params. This applies both to the script-aliased cgi-bin and cgi's 
running from regular directories, because of the AddHandler I've got in 

My server is running at with their virtualization 
software which lets them have a standard template of pre-installed 
softare that everyone uses (multiple instances of Linux running on one 
box), which I originally blamed for this strange behavior. I was 
originally running Apache 1.3.22, but I've installed the RPM to upgrade 
to 1.3.27-2.

Ok, here's the weirdest part. We've firgured out that if you remove 
libphp4 from httpd.conf, the CGIs work as expected! I would just leave 
it at that, if I didn't want to run Squirrelmail for webmail, which is 
built on PHP4. Has anyone seen this behavior? Any idea what could be 
causing this?

Thanks very much,

Jason Carreira
