[OSM-dev] Code works on sandbox API, doesn't work on main API

I have installed a packet sniffer and the weird thing is that on the POST
HEX tab of the application for the sandbox API I see the XML being passed
while on the main API it's empty. Also request body size is 0 for the main
API call while it's 189 bytes for the sandbox API call.

It seems as if CURL is not sending any data to lighttpd. So how can I force
it to do so?



The missing "magic" line was:
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_INFILESIZE, filesize('tmp/tmpfile'));

With this it works on the main API too!


Thanks for your help guys, without the sniffer idea I wouldn't have gotten
