trailing /? added to confirmation redirect

  1. I've got a problem with the confirmation redirect adding a /? to the end of the designated page.
    When you fill out the first form on this page:
    the professional registration redirects to

    Sometimes *I* get the page as it should be, other times my experience matches the complaints from users saying that they get a blank where the post/content should be.

    Using Firefox Live HTTP Header add on, the header shows
    XML-RPC server accepts POST requests only.
    (I don't really know what that means)(S)

    Some things I've read seem to imply that this could be a problem with the cache. But no specific cache plugin is installed. Some conversations I've had with my guys suggest a problem with the Apache handler.

    I have done the "switch to the twenty ten" theme... same problem.
    and the turn off all the other plugins... same problem
    I tried making a new form with the same redirect confirmation, same problem.

    I tried changing the permalink structure to test the problem as suggested here:

    However, when I set the permalinks to default (which given the ? might imply that's where the problem is) they don't change. They stay as domain/post-name

    When I change it back.. I get the message that the .htaccess is not writeable .. I changed the chmod to 777 .. still not writeable.
    I manually changed the .htaccess

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    // [the following line was not included before] (and no, this line is not in the actual file)
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    That's all I've got about that problem.
    However, here's some other stuff that happened:

    I had some trouble after the last WP upgrade adding weird characters. But I found that the DB_CHARSET did not match the set shown on the mysql database. I changed the DB_CHARSET to utf8_unicode_ci and that fixed the weird character problem.

    But is it possible there could be a problem with the DB_CHARSET?
    See my post about that here:

    I'm at a loss for where to look next (or better to fix this problem!)
