Are you POSTing or GETting the data?

        Subject:  textarea problem


        I'm not sure if this is purely a PHP problem but here it goes:

        i have a form that sends text data to a PHP script, i have some
        textarea field which goes like this:

        <TEXTAREA wrap="soft" NAME="mynote" ROWS=15 COLS=70></TEXTAREA>

        everytime i POST this, $mynote is truncated to 1867 bytes, i have
        repeatedly tried to submit text 2500 bytes long but it's always
        truncated to that size -btw there is no javascript or anything in
        middle that might modify the size- my questions is: do i have to
        setup anything special in my php.ini? i have this in my php.ini:

        post_max_size = 30M

        I have also noticed that Hotmail has no problem sending textarea
        input 2500 bytes long or more using exactly the same tags.. what's
        wrong then? I use Apache 1.3.23 and PHP 4.1.1 (on RedHat 7.1)

        if anyone has encountered this problem b4, i'd appreciate some help.
