Sorry if this is duplicate,I would think it would be but couldn't find anything.
I have a flex application that I am posting data back to a php/mysql server via IE. I haven't run into any problems yet, but knowing this ahead of time might save me a bunch of frustration and work. Is there a size limit to posting data via http?
This article says no: http://www.netlobo.com/ie_form_submit.html
This discussion says yes: http://bytes.com/topic/php/answers/538226-what-maximum-limit-using-post-method
And it all goes back and forth what I'm able to find online. So please limit answers to personally tested/verified numbers.
I am wanting to post back an XML string that can be quite large (say up to 5mb).
If it makes any difference: browser will always be IE (our product requires it), post is coming from and httpService in flex, web server is php, DB is mySql.
It depends on a server configuration. If you're working with PHP under Linux or similar, you can control it using .htaccess configuration file, like so:
And, yes, I can personally attest to the fact that this works :)
If you're using IIS, I don't have any idea how you'd set this particular value.
