Check out my support history and my error logs from yesterday. I kept getting the error page I had set up. I tried iteration after iteration and it kept giving "Premature end of script headers: /home/wiscweb/wisconsinwebwriter.com/cgi-bin/FormMail.pl failed to open log file". I read everything I could find in Kbase, the nms site and documentation files and other resources like About.com. I tried it for hours and hours all different ways.
I don't want to emulate Matt's script due to the security problems. Per the Readme file from the nms script turning that on would create security holes and doesn't allow for the more advanced options of the form.
I realize this should be simple. But it hasn't been. I am not cgi/perl knowledgable which isn't helping. But it seems to me that it should be usable "out of the box" and it isn't working. As others have installed it on other hosts so easily, and I am not changing anything other than the few options at the beginning, why is this so impossible? It scares me that they replied on 8/27/2003 to another Dreamhost user the following : "Please contact your hosting provider for technical support. They've taken our FormMail and modified it, so we can't really help." Why was this modified so much if it is so "usable out of the box" on your servers? Sorry but after 20 or so hours dedicated just to this I am frustrated.
