Trying To Get This CGI Form To Work


#1

Hi there,

I been trying to make this form to work,

From what I heard I can put the cgi folder wherever I want so the form I made it link like this /formmail/ instead of /cgi-bin/formmail for example,

Just it won’t work :frowning:

What exactly do I have to link it /formmail/ ?

Coz I got this feeling I have to make different the link to link it with the script.

Hope to hear from somebody,

I would like to say also is that, I didn’t feel like using sorry to say the DreamHost form, because if I ever want to move in case with another host, or use different email with the form it won’t leave it,

So hope its okay, I uploaded the form script in my main directory of the website,

The site i’m working on is www.tasika.com and its hosted with dreamhost,

Now as soon as I login into the ftp, I go into the tasika.com folder,

Then I uploaded there the formmail folder

So in other words its like www.tasika.com/formmail/

Now I linked the form to lots of times to /formmail/ and also http://www.tasika.com/formmail/FormMail.pl

But still won’t work :frowning:

For in case I want to use this different script, how should I make it link ?

Please hope to hear from somebody,

You can try it out and see:

Hmm… check upload location, upload mode (upload the script in ASCII mode), and permissions (set script file permission to 755).
All the best -

Currently, it’s giving a 404 Not Found error when it tries to go to the “Thank You” page at http://www.tasika.com/thankyou.html . Apparently you haven’t put a page at that location.
