Using PHP 4.3.2 CGI:

Data entered in an HTML form is not being passed to CGI script. The following methods are affected:
$HTTP_POST_VARS, $HTTP_GET_VARS, $_POST, $_GET and using the variable names as they appear in the HTML form.

Register Globals => ON

OS: RedHat Linux 2.4.18-3
Apache Version: 1.3.27
Configure Command =>  './configure' '--prefix=/usr/local' '--with-apache=../../apache_1.3.27' '--enable-exif' '--enable-track-vars' '--with-calendar=shared' '--enable-magic-quotes' '--enable-trans-sid' '--enable-wddx' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-inline-optimization' '--enable-memory-limit' '--with-gd=/usr/local' '--with-zlib' '--enable-gd-native-tt' '--with-t1lib=/usr/local' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr' '--with-png-dir=/usr' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr' '--with-ttf' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local' '--with-mhash=/usr/local' '--with-mcrypt=/usr/local' '--with-pdflib=/usr/local' '--with-tiff-dir=/usr' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr' '--with-openssl=/usr' '--with-curl=/usr' '--with-ldap'

Reproduce code:
HTML form:
<form name="the_form" action="some.cgi" method="post"> // or method="get"
<input type="text" name="var01">
<input type="text" name="var02">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">

$var01 = $_POST['var01']; // or $var01 = $_GET['var01'], etc.
$var02 = $_POST['var02'}; // or $var02 = $_GET['var02'], etc.
echo "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
echo "var01 = $var01 and var02 = $var02.";

Expected result:
var01 = <somevalue> and var02 = <anothervalue>.

Actual result:
var01 = and var02 =.

$_SERVER and $_ENV will contain the correct query string using get.

Misconfigured system. Works fine here with properly configured Apache.

My apologies to the PHP team. There is always one more thing to check before something is really a bug. As sniper guessed in my other bug report, apache was pointing to the CLI and not the CGI binary.

Thank you for your time and efforts.
