POST & Apache/1.2.5.

POST & Apache/1.2.5.

Post by Pieter Liefoogh » Sat, 27 Feb 1999 04:00:00


I'm exeriencing very strange behaviors of my perl CGI script (using on my SUN running Solaris 2.6 and Apache/1.2.5.

When I use POST as form submission method I get that the cgi script is
invoked but that most of the time the data is not "transfered" to the
CGI script. (I'm NOT using the embeded perl interpreter!)

When I use a GET method everything works fine. The only problem that I
have with this method is that when the input data is large I loose some
fields (There seems to be a limit on the amount of data that can be
"send" using GET...BTW is this a browser limit or an Apache limit?).. So
I probably need to use POST.

Has anyone of you experienced such a problem?... and knows the solution!

   Upgrade Apache and upgrade Perl.


Powered by FreeBSD 4.0-CURRENT.                       "The Power to Serve!"

int main(int m){main(!main(0));}


1. PERL && mod_perl && FreeBSD && Apache

k, I don't know where this falls under or who I should be asking... but
here's my problem.

mod_perl port installed Perl modules in
'/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-freebsd/Apache/' but didn't

have to rebuild the system perl components? the mod_perl? or is there a conf
file somewhere that I cannot find?

could 'mv' everything as well... but I would like to hear some other
opinions or options.
