Hi Erwin, Thanks for the reply but it turned out to be a slightly.... odd installation bug.
On the PHP Bug board, I managed to find that it was to do with the Apache configuration settings, namely, you should put AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 instead of; <FilesMatch "\.php$"> SetOutputFilter PHP </FilesMatch> in the httpd.conf file. This took ages to find and was only posted within that last few days on the PHP bug board, hope it helps you with your elusive first POST variable. Thanks for you help though, Regards Howard "Erwin" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote in message [EMAIL PROTECTED]">news:[EMAIL PROTECTED]... > > I've got an html form but when I use the POST method the form > > variables don't make it to the destination page, when I use the GET > > method, there's no problem.
