NSMutableURLRequest: How to change Request URI?

  • Writing an iPhone app to login to a site remotely that is running php. In order to log in to the website it appears I need to do the following:

    POST /submit.php?do=submit HTTP/1.1\r\n

    However, no matter what I do all I seem to be able to accomplish is:

    POST / HTTP/1.1\r\n

    It appears that the "/ HTTP/1.1\r\n" are added by NSMutableURLRequest. But I need it to be "/submit.php?do=submit HTTP/1.1\r\n". So how do I make these changes?

    Cheers,

    Yes; that is required by the spec. Otherwise the server would assume the client is using an ancient version of HTTP, which is not what you want to happen.

    Are you sure you're setting the URL correctly? That bit is part of the URL. What is the returned value of [request URL] prior to placing the request into a connection?

    Got it.

    Doh!!! Thanks, it's been a while and the mind gets rusty.

    Yup, just added it to the URL and now it works just perfect! I'm a happy camper!
