    External php?

    Hi
    Building a site for a client. Client already has some stupid hosting deal he is convinced is wonderful which offers 10mb space and no server side stuff.
    He wants an online form. Can I put the php on my server and have the form submit to my php from the form action on his server, or should I just put the form page on my server?
    Does that make sense to anyone?

    Yes, you can do it like that, though you could also tell the client that his server does not support server side programming and tell him to get a new host.

    Make sure he knows that you can get 5 times that much space and server side hosting for free. Or 5 bux a month to remove the ads.

    Yeah I know... I told him he could have part of my space for 25 a year. It didn't make much impression. I asked him who his host was and he told me the directory it was listed in...
    Say no more.

    Thanks for the response
