POST form not working but GET works. Setup IIS

I am 99% sure that the problem is with my server.  As you can see, there is nothing wrong with the code in the snippet below.  It's a simple form that passes information via the form input "user" to the page process.php.

I had the same problem before and somehow it started working again.  I tried to repeat some changes I made to my server that I thought correct the problem last time but those changes didn't work.

I need someone that knows how to confirgure IIS on a Windows XP machine to help me out.

I looked in php.ini and register_globals = Off.  I don't believe this needs to be on.  I just tried turning it on and it didn't do anything for my problem anyway.

ANY SERVER GURU OUT THERE WILLING TO HELP?
<form name="login" method="post" action="process.php">
<input type="text" name="user">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
 
//Here is the code from process.php
<?php
   print $_POST['user'];
?>

Open in new window

Have you tried just using $_REQUEST

btw performance wise its quicker to use echo instead of print.

1 - what if you started with a full debugging exploration of passed values?
 
//Here is the code from process.php
<?php
$debug=true; //easy to change
if ($debug) {
  echo '** on entry, the array _POST is [<pre>';
  print_r ($_POST);
  echo '</pre>] **<br>';
}
   print $_POST['user'];
?>

2 - in parallel, look for other items in the check list
-- are you using the cgi or dll version of php
-- any problem with disk space or disk quota for user? for IIS
-- any problem with access rights on the sessions directory? with any other directory?

3 - You might get a copy of phpinfo() and, if nothing confiudential is present, post it here as attached file
