    Exclamation FormMail Help

    Hi there,

    I am having problems getting my FormMail working from the contact area of my website. I'm recieving 'Internal Server Errors' when the form is submitted. I think it could be because I don't have permissions set to 755, but i'm not sure how to set these.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated: url is:
    www.theactorsdesignshop.co.uk/contact.html

    Regards
    Jordan K

    Re: FormMail Help, please...

    What kind of script are you using; e.g., is your contact form something you wrote yourself or one you got off the internet? If it's something you wrote yourself, you'll need to post your code so we can have a look at it. If it's a script you got off the internet, have you read and followed all the setup instructions?

    Re: FormMail Help, please...

    I didn't write it myself I got it from Matts Script Archive. The script is in CGI. You can view source of my form by going to www.theactorsdesignshop.co.uk/contact.html, and this is the script for formmail.cgi. Apologies as there is a lot!

    Re: FormMail Help, please...

    Did you read and follow the setup instructions? Also, what is the exact error message you're getting?

    Re: FormMail Help, please...

    This is the error message i'm recieving:

    (Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator, jordan_1984@hotmail.co.uk and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.)

    I followed the setup instructions given with the code. But there is one step I couldn't figure out. The advice given says that I should have my permissions set to 755 but i'm unsure how to set this.

    You can try sending the form from the actual site and see the error message which is: www.theactorsdesignshop.co.uk/contact.html

    Regards

    Hi,

    To change the permissions in Unix/Linux:

    cd /path/to/script
    chmod 755 script

    Try it again.

    Re: FormMail Help, please...

    This is no code snippet. I posted commands assuming that you're running Unix/Linux. If so, from the command line or in an xterm, Eterm or Konsole window, type the two commands I'd posted previously. You'll have to know the path to the script. Here are the commands again:

    cd /path/to/script/
    chmod 755 script

    I'm not remotely sure how you'd do this in Windows.

    Gain root access and do those two commands. That should get it.

    Re: FormMail Help

    Some servers have a setting that does not allow scripts entitled FormMail. This is because these are now very vulnerable to spammers and other slime.
    Don't use Matt's. Here is a better replacement:

    Older versions of that script are vulnerable to spammers, but I don't believe the latest version of Matt's script has that problem. Regardless, the main thing that anyone must do is test input data for any suspicious data. Otherwise, your contact form could be potentitally used as a spam relay, or disclose sensitive data for your website.

    Re: FormMail Help

    The error you stated is also given if a Windows file is upload and is not convereted to the unix format. For reasons that I do not know, bash chokes because of the extra char. i.e unix = xxx<lf> and win = xxx<cr><lf>
    On my site. I debug everything on my windows machine then upload to the unix server. I then open and close the file with a server text editor and it does the conversion.

    Re: FormMail Help

    From a Unix/Linux box to change the line feeds from ^M to ^N simply do this:

    todos < unixfile > windowsfile

    or conversely from Windows to Unix:

    fromdos < winfile > unixfile

    right click on the file and change its chmod to 755.
