Subject Re: [users@httpd] Uploading a file using HTTp to apache web server.
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2012 09:21:57 GMT
Thank you. How the script will read the results, should it read using HTTP
GET (as I am new to this).  Is there any information available regarding
this anywhere in the website.

Regards,
Sharmistha
