I'm having some trouble submitting HTML form data to a PHP script on a secure site using IE7.
The code itself is a very basic HTML form with no special function other than to submit the data in it's fields to an HTTPS address. When i submit the form in IE6 or FireFox it works fine, the results of the post are returned to the browser as expected. However when i submit the form using IE7, the browser attempts to download the PHP script to my local drive instead of executing it.
I can't find any security settings in IE7 or windows that would indicate this as the preferred action. I have made sure i have the most current updates for IE7, but the result is the same. I have tried the posting on other machines and they all work fine as long as they are not running IE7.
The goal of this form was supposed to be a quick and easy way to avoid having to use an HTTP class/object in Visual FoxPro to post a set of data from our database to an external site. We needed the solution to be quick and cost/time effective as we're not familliar with posting via HTTP. And so i created an Internet Explorer object in a foxpro form, navigated to an html file on our local server and submit the HTML form in attempt to easilly send an HTTP post. But IE7 appears to have other plans!
Any ideas why IE7 is attempting to download the PHP script instead of passing the post data and executing the script? I'm hoping this is something really quick and simple because i need to get on with parsing the response from ths script.
Alternatively a relatively quick and easy way to post urlencoded data in FoxPro would be just as good!
Thanks in advance!
