problem with formmail script.
Can anyone help with my formmail problem please.
I am trying to use the popular formmail script on a website for users to submit requests and problem reports.
when the submit button is clicked, I see the following error from /etc/httpd/logs/error_log. the mail is never sent.
[Wed Aug 16 11:32:37 2006] [error] [client 10.21.144.243] Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser., referer: http://pype.cisco.com/new_site/sampleform.htm
the script permission is set to 755.

Re: problem with formmail script.
tranld - Your script is probably fine. But that does not mean it has the authority to access your mail program.
With all the spam issues some hosting companies are buttoning down the use of web sent mail.
You may have permission as a user to send mail, but when a form is submitted by user "nobody" and tries to access the mail it may not have permission.
Thats what it looks like to me. But its just a guess. Maybe someone has another idea.
