HTTPS POST won't work, HTTP POST does, when calling itself

P: 2
I have a form that needs to post data for display on the next page. The form works perfectly using HTTP, but now that I'm trying to use HTTPS the form will connect and then wait until it times out. I've done everything that I can think of such as making sure the session id is carried from page to page. I thought it may be a server issue, so I contacted godaddy and they didn't give me any answers. BTW, i do have a SSL certificate installed. I've added debugging code to see if I even get to the next page, and I don't even get that far. I do know that it searches for the action page b/c it will tell me that it doesn't exist if I put a bogus page in the action.

Does anyone have any ideas? I've seen a couple of posts that were somewhat vague, but implied it was a server problem. Mine is professionally hosted so I need a little more detail in how to attack the problem.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to TSDN!

In order to help you you must show the code you have for this. If it is too much code, just the <form> code and the code that handles the $_POST will do.

And do not forget to enclose any code within the appriopriate code tags.

Thanks Ronald for the response, but I figured it out. I was using the free hosting service for godaddy.com and I thought that maybe that was the issue, so I paid the $3 and change and presto ... my issue went away. Works perfectly now.

Thanks again.
