I'm still struggling with this. I have a valid JSON string, verified by
a web-checking site and by the PHP developer. He wants me to POST it
It doesn't work. He says the server receives it but it is not passed to
the PHP script because the main parameter is empty. Here's what I do:
set the httpHeaders to "content-type: application/json"
put convertToJSON() into tData -- produces valid JSON
put "json=" before tData
post tData to kServerURL
The result is empty. The developer has set up the PHP to return the
values back to me for testing, but "it" is also always empty. He says
this means there is no "main parameter", but he also said adding "json="
to the front would provide that, he will just grab the params from what
The URL is https if that matters. I have also tried URLEncoding the JSON
but it didn't help. I also tried removing the custom header.
He pointed me to this web site: <https://www.hurl.it/> When I set it to
send JSON and enter the same params there, it POSTs successfully to the
How would you POST a JSON string to a PHP script on a secure server?
