Hi all, I have a simple script to POST data, but for some reason it is not posting the data:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use LWP::UserAgent; use MIME::Base64; use JSON; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; push @{ $ua->requests_redirectable }, 'POST'; my $server_endpoint = ""; my $server_api_key = "xxxx"; my $encoded = ""; my $req = HTTP::Request->new(POST => $server_endpoint); #$req->header('content-type' => 'multipart/form-data'); $req->header('content-type' => 'application/json'); my $post_json = { key => $server_api_key, source => $encoded, format => "json", }; my $post_data = encode_json($post_json); $req->content($post_data); printf "\n\n$post_data\n"; my $resp = $ua->request($req); print $resp->as_string; if ($resp->is_success) { my $message = $resp->decoded_content; print "Received reply: $message\n"; } else { print "HTTP POST error code: ", $resp->code, "\n"; print "HTTP POST error message: ", $resp->message, "\n"; }
Response in web server logs: - - [03/Apr/2016:19:22:43 +1000] "POST /api/1/upload/ HT +TP/1.1" 301 424 "-" "libwww-perl/6.08"
You can see that the data is not being posted? I would expect to see something like: (which works when I use the Paw Client to do the POST) - - [03/Apr/2016:19:32:44 +1000] "POST /api/1/upload/?key +=xxxx&format=json& HTT +P/1.1" 200 2570 "-" "Paw/2.3.3 GCDHTTPRequest"
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, HW

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
