Indy HTTP Post gives error 404

Hi

I have a delphi-program where I execute a php-file. It worked, and suddently I get the error 404 (page not found). entering the same link in the browser works and if I don't call it in a subdirectory it also works!

      IdHTTP1.Post('http://www.mysite.ch/tmp/EMail.php',vparam);

Open in new window

gives the error

      IdHTTP1.Post('http://www.mysite.ch/EMail.php',vparam);

Open in new window

is ok (I have a copy of that php in both directories to test it.

Where can be the problem? Thanks for every idea!

did you check your web server configuration if /tmp is mapped somewhere else
(in apache with Alias, Location directives)

I don't know exactly what you mean (I'm not the web-expert) but I think that you mean there is not a real folder but it's only an alias. No, it is a real folder and I just made another test: if I rename the folder from "tmp" to "tmpxx" I can access it. If I rename it again to "tmp" I get the error 404! Very strange behaviour!

This issue is valid for each php, working in tmpxx, not working in tmp!

I check for /tmp folder in indy source and found that it is notified in: IdSSLOpenSSLHeaders.
My guess is that it is used in some web servers too for temporary reason and I think that it should not be used. Use 'tools' sub-folder for example.
