    I have big problems with phpLsapi when the post data is big (between 4 and 16 Ko) : It randomly truncate the end of the post vars.

    I switch to phpFcgi the time to find a solution.

    That's a serious issue, can it be reliably reproduced? What is the PHP version? Your OS?

    It will be very helpful if you can provide us a sample script to reproduce the bug.

    System : RHEL4 Kernel 2.6.9-11.ELsmp
    lsws 2.1.4, php 4.4.0 with litespeed patch 1.6

    In a form with 7 inputs, and a textarea in the middle, lsphp truncate the textarea vars (often when there is more text) in the middle and drop the next inputs vars.

    I will see for a script.

    If you can use phpLsapi and lsws 2.1.4 on this board, you can check for this bug by previewing/posting a medium/big message.

    IO, if you can post a reproducible script, that would do wonders.

    I will keep a watch on this to see if this happens to me, though I do not have reports of such cases, on a site with php 5.0.5 + lsws 2.1.4 and lsapi and lots and lots of POST operations.

    data sent to xmlrpc is truncated at almost random places. mostly at 8192. only sometimes php gets past 16kb.

    Can you please create a testing script for us to reproduce the bug in our lab.

    Thanks! :)

    test script, poster source, win32 and freebsd executables in there http://3priedez.net/files/poster.zip

    put test.php somewhere on server
    compile yourself or use precompiled binaries
    and use it like

    poster.exe http://3priedez.net/test.php

    sometimes it returns right lenght sometimes it crashes php or smth - 503 Service Unavailable

    also strange behavior when posting to url that doesnt exist

    when posting to http://3priedez.net/log/test
    folder log exists but file test doesnt
    when posting to nonexisting folder it gives normal 404

    tested on Apache/1.3.34 (Win32) PHP/4.4.1
    works as should be every time - test script returns correct lenght
