I am running Moodle 1.5.3 and have recently had a problem when updating
a course. The $_POST variable is empty but only if a lot of text was
entered into the textarea on the form. If only a short text is entered
it works fine.
I have increased the post_max_size from 8M to 200M but this has not helped.
I have googled for an answer but have been unable to find one.
HTTP Headers on firefox shows the content size of 3816 with the correct
data, so its just not getting to $_POST.
Thanks for your assistance.
Re: _POST is empty if a lot is entered into textarea in form
3816 bytes of data in a postfield should be no problem at all. I have
posted megabytes without any problem.
I don't know the first thing about Moodle, but I suggest you try this
out again with your own simple script, and see what happens.
If you still hit a 3816 bytes for a formfield, you have found a bug in
PHP (or ubuntu).
If you can post normally: something in Moodle is causing this problem
(but I have no clue WHAT of course, since I don't know moodle.)
Please report back with your findings.
