I am very new to all this and have recently set up a website using Webplus X5 and justhost as the web host. On the website I have included a form for clients to include their Name etc and attach a document. I have been trying to correct / change the code on the form (using CGI) for a while now but I cannot get it to work.

Please please please could someone help me, because as I said I am new to all this and have try / read everything I can but I am totally getting confused now! I have contacted the web host provided but they don't seem to want to help.

Anyway I have included the upload script and form script (plus some of the rest of the page script - if you can help and need the rest I can post it) I have been trying to correct and would be very grateful if someone could try and direct me to how to make it work.

Also any advice on where the forms / upload script should go would be welcome as I have read that if it is not put in the right place the whole thing will not work.

As I said I am TOTALLY confused with it all now and really could do with some help!


Upload script

#!/usr/bin/perl -wT

use strict;
use CGI;
use CGI::Carp qw ( fatalsToBrowser );
use File::Basename;

$CGI::POST_MAX = 1024 * 5000;
my $safe_filename_characters = "a-zA-Z0-9_.-";
my $upload_dir = "/uploads";

my $query = new CGI;
my $filename = $query->param("DOCUMENT1");
my $email_address = $query->param("email_address");

if ( !$filename )
print $query->header ( );
print "There was a problem uploading your document (try a smaller file).";

my ( $name, $path, $extension ) = fileparse ( $filename, '\..*' );
$filename = $name . $extension;
$filename =~ tr/ /_/;
$filename =~ s/[^$safe_filename_characters]//g;

if ( $filename =~ /^([$safe_filename_characters]+)$/ )
$filename = $1;
die "Filename contains invalid characters";

my $upload_filehandle = $query->upload("DOCUMENT1");

open ( UPLOADFILE, ">$upload_dir/$filename" ) or die "$!";

while ( <$upload_filehandle> )


print $query->header ( );
print <<END_HTML;
