I have a script that was supposed to post data to another web page. I use curl and I can request a page with "get" but not with "post". I wrote a python script that works from CLI. When I try to execute it on the server it works only for other pages on the server but not out of localhost.

Sorry, because it sounds unclear but I am not sure where is the problem.

Check your apache configuration for directive, may be POST method denied for some reasons

I think that POST isn't denied. – Jack Dec 27 '10 at 20:16
