$_POST variable cut off

Postby karmacrow » Mon Feb 07, 2011 1:38 pm


We are passing a relatively large amount of data to a script via a form.

When testing this from our development machine (running PHP 5.3.2 and a Lighttpd Web Server), everything works fine, however from our live machine (running PHP Version 5.2.14 and Apache 2) the $_POST variable delivers incomplete data, i.e. the array is just cut off, as if the space storing the array was full or some kind of memory overflow happened...

post_max_size is set to 8M in both environments and the data is just text so it is way smaller than 8M.

Does anyone have an idea where the problem could be?

Thanks in advance!
