Hello,
I have a search form using a POST method (not a GET one!).
After recieving the request I would like to have my page (the same page) be reloaded on the server with user friendly url in the browser address box.
http://exemple.com/spage.php?id=12&ci=13

I did it like this:

....

page = 'spage.php?id=' . $received['sloc'] . '&ci=' .$received['sdef'];

if($redirect == 1){
header('Location: ' . $page);
exit();
}
....

And it works on my local computer but it does not work on Godaddy server.
How it can be done? And wthat is the best way to make a transfer from POST to GET?

Thank you.
A+

So why not use the GET method for your form and save yourself the trouble?

You didn't give the entire code, so first of all we don't know what
$redirect contains.

But the most common problem with this type of code is the headers
already being sent. This will be done by ANYTHING (even white space)
being sent before the header() call. For instance, is GoDaddy inserting
something ahead of your code? Or do you have ANYTHING which will send
output before your header call (even a blank line at the start of the
file will do this).

If you still can't find your problem, immediately after the <?php in
your file, add:

error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors', '1');

What message(s) is(are) displayed?

Note: Don't leave this code in on a production system.

Also: it is possible to use $_REQUEST[] as a replacement for *both* $_GET[]
and $_POST[]. Thus the form can be POSTed, but the search page can be accessed
with a URL (eg GET method). If you do this, be sure to validate and check for
spoofed URLs.

I would also add what Robert touched on but needs to be driven home.

Do not use $_REQUEST UNLESS.....you have some trustworthy validation
checks that you would trust all your bank account information to.

The request superglobal also contains $_COOKIES, which from my last
recollection are loaded last and can overwrite your gets and posts which
can really spoil your day.

I personally don't use it period.

Ditto here, Scott. I find it much better to use the appropriate
superglobal ($_GET, $_POST or $_COOKIE) to ensure the value is coming
from where it is supposed to.

Additionally, what happens if you're expecting a value for 'xyz' in the
$_GET or $_POST array, and at some point change other code to set a
cookie named 'xyz'? It can cause all kinds of weird, hard to find problems.

$_REQUEST, IMHO, is just a bug waiting to occur.
