    help with saving form to html

    Hey all,

    Well First off let me explain what im trying to do.. I have a form which i made in html..
    just something like

    first name
    last name
    city
    state

    thats just a example.. but you input your info into a text box..

    At the bottom of the form theres a textbox called "number" and a submit button.

    i need it to be able to reconize the name they enter and save it as a *.html in a random directory

    so if they enter 123 and click submit

    it saves to C:\files\123.html


    i cant get it to work.. does anyone have any ideas?


    thanks!!!

    - Jonathan

    You'll need a server side language/process to actually create a file on the server....

    You will still need a serverside language running on the local machine. HTML can't create files or directories.

    You can download PHPDev which will install PHP, Apache and MySQL on to your local computer to simulate a server
