View Full Version : Posting via headers

04-30-2004, 12:18 PM
To send information via header("Location: /site/"); will redirect the user to a URL (in this case, the directory site). but this forward the person via the GET routine.

My question is, how do you forward someone and send information via the POST routine?

Its not that simple for POST, you need to open a socket and format the data that way , there are samples somewhere in the manual , check out fsockopen (http://www.php.net/fsockopen) & also check out the sockets & streams functions
