While crawling through the tubes to php.net, exploring php configuration
settings and defaults I realized that my permissions might be wonky.
Let's say that my PHP test app using both $_POST and $_SESSION data is
in the directory /var/www/testapp
$ sudo chmod 777 /var/www/testapp
FF browser> http://localhost/testapp/
worked with transitions between various pages and moving data between
then in $_POST and $_SESSION
IE browser> http://<insert-ip-address-here>/testapp/
from the WinX machine brought up the testapp but w/problems with moving
data around in $_POST and $_SESSION
Maybe chmod 777 is dangerous and 655 might be a better choice (once the
issues w/'net access to the testapp data are solved)
But I think I am on the right track.
