I've posted this on the forum also (
http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=5594 ) but figured I might
have better luck asking here.



I wrote a small PHP script to import all the Romanian settlement boundaries
and it is working perfectly fine on api06.dev.openstreetmap.org. However
when I switched to api.openstreetmap.org I keep getting bad request errors.

Here's the code that creates a changeset.

$server = 'api.openstreetmap.org';

$put_file = fopen('tmp/tmpfile', 'w+');
fwrite($put_file, $create_changeset_data);

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PUT, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_INFILE, $put_file);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, $user.':'.$password);
$changeset_id = curl_exec($ch);

In $create_changeset_data I have the following:

        <tag k="created_by" v="Romanian Settlement Boundaries v0.1"/>
        <tag k="comment" v="Boundaries for Bicaz / Source: Mircea Angelescu

The provided user / password combination works and I can write tmp/tmpfile.

The error I'm getting (including headers) is here:

As I said, if I change $server to api06.dev.openstreetmap.org it works fine.
I don't get it, isn't the sandbox supposed to be exactly the same as the
main API? What's the use of it if it's not? :(
