Noob - Can't get POST to work


I wrote the following php code

<?php use \Psr\Http\Message\ServerRequestInterface as Request; use \Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface as Response; require '../vendor/autoload.php'; $app = new \Slim\App; $app->post('/TestService', function (Request $request, Response $response) { $data = $request->getParsedBody(); $response->getBody()->write($data['name']); return $response; }); $app->run(); Then I send post data like this /usr/bin/curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d '{"name":"demo"}' and I get a 404 error. I can run the GET example fine from this exact location on the file system, so I am assuming this is an issue with my SLIM code


If you look in your server’s access log, what URL does it say you are hitting when you get the 404?


php -S

Oh, didn’t realize you were using the built in PHP server… not sure if it has access log capabilities. I was hoping to have it show the URL being accessed.

I’m headed out for the day so I won’t be able to try your code until tomorrow, perhaps someone else can see the issue right away or give the code a try.


I’m embarrassed to say that it was a typo, all working now.


Hey, no worries… we’ve all done that!
