    resolved [RESOLVED] Help me see Contents of $_POST Please.

    Hi guys!

    I have a device that is posting RAW data to my php site.

    This is the first time I have ever worked with unknown index's.

    I'm trying to see what the device is posting but all I ever get is the word "Array" or "a:0{}" or something to that matter.

    Here is some of the things I have tried:

    PHP Code:
    if (isset($_POST))
    {
    $string "1 \n";
    $string .= " ".$_POST." \n";
    $string .= "2 \n";
    $string .= " ".print_r(serialize($_POST), true)." \n";
    $string .= "3 \n";
    $string .= " ".var_dump($_POST)." \n";
    $string .= "4 \n";
    $string .= " ".var_export($_POST)." \n";
    $string .= "10 \n";
    foreach(
    $_POST as $k => $v) {
        
    $string .= "Key: {$k}<br>\r\n";
        
    $string .= "Value: {$v}<br><br>\r\n";

    $fp fopen('txtdump.rtf''ab');

    if (
    $fp)
    {
    fwrite($fp,$string);
    fclose($fp);

    echo 
    'OK';

    }


    I can see the data in wireshark, it's a bunch of TAB delimited data but i can't for the life of me get it into a file for debugging purposes.

    thanks for your input.
    -Chad

    Try:
    PHP Code:
    $string file_get_contents("php://input");

    Awesome!
    That worked perfectly!!
    Now I just need to parse out the data, thank you so much, I was banging my head against this for 3 days.
    I thought I had read the entire PHP website and remember reading about that string but never actually tried it.

    Thanks again NogDog.
    You have resolved my question.

    Debug your form fields with this, commented in or
    out as you need:

    PHP Code:
    $sent explode"&"file_get_contents("php://input"));
        for(
    $x=0;$x<count($sent);$x++) {
            echo 
    $sent[$x] . "<br/>";
