I recently loaded Apache 2 as a testing sever and also loaded Php 5.2.0 which is running in Apache. However when I try to post the text in a text field to another page nothing happens. It seems as if the PHP script is not been read

PHP can read it. In PHP 5 are register_globals are off by default. So you have to turn it on in php.ini (not recommend) or you have to use new super globals e.g. $_POST / $_GET.


Code:

<form action="your.php" method="post">
<input type="text" name="bla1" />
<input type="text" name="bla2" />
</form>


your.php
Code:

<?php

$bla1=$_POST['bla1'];
$bla2=$_POST['bla2'];
?>


The old HTTP_*_VARS are turned off by default in PHP 5 and greater!
Can be turned on in php.ini register_long_arrays. Not recomment!
