Uploading - 4k problem Can't Post

Hi,

I am having an upload prolem with a few servers. The problem is that it won't upload over 4 kb.

I didn't post the code here because I actually have 3 different alternate scripts to get around this problem. About 3 out of 300 servers I have installed on will have this problem. Usually one of my alternate upload scripts will fix this problem, but I have encountered one server that nothing seems to work on. Of course, the host says "everything is fine"...

It is obviously a server/memory block problem at 4kb, but I was wondering if anyone here knows how to get around that? Of course, I have tried flushing the buffer with $|=1;. Anyone have any other ideas for getting around this problem?

Also, any idea what could cause this? I realize it could be different things with different servers.....it doesn't seem to be an OS issue becuase I have seen it on Linux, Windows, etc. Could it be IP addressing and DNS tables?

Thanks in advance for any input on this!

Since this is "Perl Programming Help"
I'm sad to tell you that you can't get help here.

It is most definetly a SERVER issue,
unless your HTML FORM METHOD is QUERY
instead of POST which it should be for uploads.
Asides from fixing that, it's all the servers fault.

There is the potential that you've got a bum
copy of CGI.pm installed (if you're using CGI),
but the chances of that are none to none
(it's so improbable, it's beyond slim to none)
If you're not using CGI.pm or some proven variant
(cgi-lib is NOT ONE)
then you're in real trouble
(beyond help, use CGI or DIE)

Also, this might be a SERVER bug
(not just a SERVER CONFIGURATION bug)

Knowing the Make'n'Model of your SERVER
might HELP (i need somebody to STOP ME ;)
