Is any version of Apache known to have any issues with using getenv on any version of Linux?  The CGI/c++ program giving problems will occasionally return nulls or zero values with getenv("POST") and getenv("CONTENT_LENGTH");

I need to rule a server side issue out -- then, see if client is the problem.

Have you checked users permission who execute your program ? Because if user doesnt have permission for apache , your program will get null values.Please try to execute script from root user and reply again this post.

Correction to question..meant to say getenv("REQUEST_METHOD") and then, check for post

Korcan, this problem only happens occasionally so it must not be a permission problem

'POST' can be of zero sized length if no actual content was passed. It might as well be a problem with the client.
