    resolved [RESOLVED] 413 Request Entity Too Large

    Hi,

    When I try to pass a URL using GET and urlencode()/urldecode() from one page to another, I get the following error:
    Request Entity Too Large
    The requested resource
    /dir/scriptB.php
    does not allow request data with GET requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit.
    I'm doing this like so:
    PHP Code:
    # /dir/scriptA.php
    <a href="/dir/scriptB.php?country=CA&page= <?=urlencode('http://fqdn.net/dir/scriptC.php?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node='.$node);?>">Link name</a>
    GET requests are indeed allowed. How do I fix this? Thank you.

    Not sure about this, but theres probably something a max length in the php.ini, and your exceeding the set value.

    Thank you, Kyleva2204, for your reply. That's what I thought at first, and it scared me a bit since I don't have access to php.ini. Turns out though that I should have entered a space after page= and <?=. Ironically, that's how I wrote it in my original post to make it easier to read instead of having this one long line. Once I put a space after page= everything works the way it should.

    I wouldn't use <?= - Use <?php echo - Short tags will be gone in PHP 6.
    As for the problem, I know that a URI can only have a max number of chars in it. IIRC it's well over 255.. The only thing I can think of is that php was reading it as "page=<=" - equal to or greater than equals...
