PHP 4.02 (Win version from the site)
I am able to access my Interbase DB and perform other PHP functions *but* in the scripts below, I am not receiving data passed via the URL (e.g. $username).


<form action="processform.php" method=POST>
  Please type your name here:<br>
  <input type="text" name="username"><br><br>
  <input type=submit value="Submit data"


  echo("Welcome, " . $username);
