php curl 413 error

Hi,

When using curl in PHP I get 413 errors. Why is that?
It's also weird because the script works on my PHP Version 5.3.1 (cURL Information       7.19.6)
but it doesn't work on:
PHP Version 5.2.9 (cURL Information       libcurl/7.21.4 OpenSSL/0.9.8b zlib/1.2.3 libidn/0.6.5)

It seems as if PHP 5.2 and 5.3 CURL behave differently, although I haven't experienced the problems myself. A search on Google gave me a comparable error where calling the Twitter API from 5.2 worked and 5.3 didn't, perhaps it'll help you figure out what Curl-settings behave differently now:

http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/detail?id=1291

Another post shows that there was a bug in the curl_wrappers below PHP 5.2.11, so it would be a good idea to update to the most recent PHP 5.2.17:

http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/11888 (see comment 28)

Good luck!

I was able to solve the problem by changing line 26 to:

	  curl_setopt($this->curlHandle, CURLOPT_POST, false);
