Current Lynx versions can optionally support HTTP POST;
however, it doesn't work for the PHP file upload functions.
I believe this happens because the upload might be broken in the RFC, but I've seen some discussion on the site that suggests PHP3 uploads were broken with lynx. 

I'm attaching the (edited and ^Med) POST produced so somebody who knows the RFC better can comment:

Could you please try with PHP 4.0.6 as there were
couple of fixes regarding this issue in it. 

Also, you should try the latest CVS snapshot from to verify the latest fixes
haven't broke anything.

No feedback. Reopen if you still have this problem
with PHP 4.0.7 (soon to be released) or with latest CVS 
snapshot from
