Nope, nothing has changed in the last year... I checked the time stamps on lots of files relating to PHP and Apache, and they are all about a year old (almost exactly). Nothing has been upgraded or anything.
The problem seems to be somewhat random, sometimes I will fill out the form and it will be processed correctly, then I try it again, and it fails. I did 3 in a row that were successful, then 2 in a row that were unsuccessful, then 1 that wa succesful. It seems to be random. Sometimes the POST comes through, other times it doesnt.
Just now I downloaded php-4.3.5 and installed that (or tried to) hoping to accidently fix this POST problem by reinstalling PHP, but I cant seem to get php 4.3.5 to install over 4.3.1. Everything runs successfully, but then I run phpinfo() and it still has the old version number listed. This is a side matter though... main problem is still the forms not working 100% of the time...
Nothing stands out in error logs or messages. I am stumped... this sucks.
