array $ _POST always empty - enrico.carli - 07-11-2022

Good evening everyone,

i am new to codeigniter 4, i used 3.

I'm making a simple form with method = post

which refers to a controller;

I followed the tutorial on the guide of ci4 "build your first app"

however the array I get $ _POST is always empty.

i think there is an htaccess rule that adds a trailing slash,

doing so I lose the array.

Has it already happened to anyone?

Thanks a lot to those who will help me

sorry my english

There's no such rule in the .htaccess provided with the framework. Did you add rules to the file?

Your rule redirects the POST request, and you will see the next GET request. So $_POST is empty, because it is a GET request.

Yes, there is a slash rule in .htaccess. Only it does not add, but removes the slash. You can even see it in your screenshot.

Three solutions.
1. Remove slash from url (recommended)
2. Remove forward slash rule
3. Change the response code in the slash redirect rule from 301 to 308 (or 307).
