I installed PHP 4.2.3 on a Win2000k server with IIS 5.0. The installation did not complete saying that I needed to finish configuring PHP manually because of a missing OCX. I followed the install.txt in the PHP directory.

PHP scripts seem to work mostly. I can assign variables, read from files, etc.

But, when I try to use an envronment variable, REQUEST_METHOD, I get an undefined variable error.

I can run phpinfo() and REQUEST_METHOD is listed and has a value. I compared the phpinfo() otput to output from a webhost that my script works on and found nothing that would seem to cause the problem.

Any clues?

I found the answer in another part of this forum.


Amazing now that I know what the answer is, I can find it everywhere. But when I was searching all over the net, I couldn't find it because I didn't realize what the problem truely was.
