I'm using Greymatter 1.2d since last august and it always
worked well. Today I've been informed by a reader of my
blog that the comment post/preview function doesn't work
anymore. I tested it and the problem exists.
After filling the form and pressing 'submit' or
'preview' the server stops for almost 30 seconds, then
the program show 'no valid data', a message that usually is
showed when no input have been inserted.
I experimented a bit and discovered that:
1) if I do not fill any field (name/mail/comment)
the 'no valid data' is showed immediatly, as it
2) a simple cgi program that does the same things of
initial lines of gm-comments.cgi (read data from stdin,
and parse it with regex) works flawlessy.
3) another cgi script based on the exact initial lines of
gm-comment.cgi works well too.
Any idea of what can be happened?
I contacted support but since it may be a greymatter iussue
(but once again, it worked for months and I didn't change
anything) I prefer to ask here too.
Note that the gm-comments.cgi module expects a form to be
sent thru POST method.
Thanks in advance if someone can help...
I tried the 'diagnostic and repair' option and all
come back working correctly. Still I'm curious to know
what can be happened. Any idea?
