    Hi Stuart,

    I've seen several JotForm users who were using PHP5 without any issues.
    The send post data uses HTTP Post to transmit the submitted data.
    Below is a sample on how to use this feature:

    1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:
    <? print_r($_POST); ?>
    2. Go to "Setup & Share" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php
    3. Enable the "Send Post Data"
    4. Save and submit your form.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
