thanks. :) i know that newbie questions can be as frustrating for
(i guess) 'oldbies' as the problems the newbies are having, so a
fast, positive answer is nice.

oh yes. w/ and w/o ssl -- same problem.
> Are your php pages .php or .php3 or .php4?
hm, i hadn't tried that. i just duped the and addes those
etensions -- same problem. :/
i'm gonna feel really stupid when this get solved. but i'll
attach a beer to my thank-you mail to whoever helps!
