At any given moment, several HTTP clients can request posting data at the same
time. They can hang indefinitely in the middle of sending data. If the process
involves writing to a file, this can lead to data corruption or data loss. Even
with a file lock, other such requests can be delayed or even denied. That's why
a more sophisticated approach, possibly with caching, transactions and other
methods which are present in database systems, is needed.
