Description Gerald Teschl 2003-03-05 18:55:16 UTC
Description of problem:
I tried to install squirelmail, but one cannot send emails. I traced the
problem down to the fact that a form using 'multipart/form-data' will
behave like nothing is submitted.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Call the following script
<form action="action.php" method="POST"  ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data">
 Your name: <input type="text" name="name" />
 <input type="submit" name=test>
<?php if (isset($_POST['test'])) { ?>
Hi <?php echo $_POST["name"]; ?>.
<?php } ?>
Enter "xxx" and submit the date.

Actual results:
No "Hi xxx." is printed.

Expected results:
"Hi xxx." should be printed.

Additional info:
1) This is not a client problem. I tried different clients.
2) If one removes 'ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data"' it will work.
3) On RH 8.0 the same script works.

You say this *works* in 8.0, yet you have filed this bug against 8.0? Did you
mean to file this against a 7.x release?

Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2003-04-07 18:10:57 UTC
Sorry, you are right, I wanted to file this against 7.3
