Writing to a web server

I have a question about writing a file to my web server. I understand I cannot do this directly.
So I use a PHP script that is called by my applet. I've tried 2 methods, but none are satisfactory.

The first is to pass the content of the file to write using the PHP ?param= option. It works, But if param is too long, I get a 414 Error by the server saying the url is too long. So that's no good.

The second is to call the script for every line written, It works, but this is very very slow.

I'm running out of ideas. Could you please help

I would like to keep it simple.


Here my Applet method to run the PHP script

and the php script

I agree. Here's the link:
