    Exclamation Form wont send the content to the email address

    Hi Guys,

    Ive created a form before and it has always worked. Im using the same server and the same script. I have changed all necessary fields on the formmail script. It redirects when yo uhit submit so obviously it finds the script, but it is just not emailing the content of the form to the email address.

    Any ideas why? Sooooo stressed!!!!!!!!

    Here is the form
    http://www.restorealexandrasquare.com/form.htm

    thanks for ur help!!

    The first thing that pops out at me is the formmail name action="http://www.restorealexandrasquare.com/cgi-bin/FormMail.cgi.pl"

    The script should be either .cgi or .pl, not .cgi.pl

    Re: Form wont send the content to the email address

    Hey,

    Yeah i know wat you mean, but i was reading this book and it said depending on some servers you might have to make it FormMail.cgi but when i do that it doesnt work. So i tried FormMail.cgi.pl then it works (it finds the script).

    In my form that actually works i have it set to FormMail.cgi.pl

    I'll try it again as FormMail.cgi.

    I have attached the script just in case.

    Re: Form wont send the content to the email address

    Okay here it is as FormMail.cgi

    http://www.restorealexandrasquare.com/form2.htm

    FormMail.pl doesn't work on this server, i already tried it.

    Formail.cgi works coz it redirects, but i still don't receive any email.

    Would you like the username and password sent over by email for yuo to check?

    You may want to check with your host, maybe it is a flag issue.

    no errors stuck out except for what I mentioned earlier in regards to the extension being wrong, then again I am no perl expert. If you want to upload the script again feel free to do so, but for your own sake replace your personal info with xxxxxs

    And also, check your server logs. It may have errors in there that will tell us whats wrong.
