I do not understand why my form I have on my web site is not working correctly. I am using angelfire.com as my web host and Microsoft XP Frontpage to build the site.
Every time I try to summit the form I get this error
"Oops! We can only accept forms that
come from a Angelfire URL. Sorry!"
I have tried to learn CIG/Perl by reading up on it through web sites, but with no help!
I can read what I have submitted in my _private folder in my cgi_bin but I would like to have them sent to my email address. Do I need a new folder in my cgi_bin with the script to handle this process... ..Please someone help me understand what I am doing wrong. I have added my web address and the HTLM for that page.
First of all ... are you sure you're allowed to run scripts from your angelfire account? The following is from the angelfire site:
If you subscribe to Angelfire Neon, Argon, Xenon, or Krypton, you can upload, write, and edit your own CGI/Perl scripts!"
In other words, if you have the free hosting, cgi support is not included.
Aside from that ...
When I go to the url for your web site, I see in the source that you have an extra opening form tag (<form>). You need to remove that and then try again. There could be other things as well, but it looks like the form is sending the data via "GET" rather than "POST" which is what you specified in the second form tag.
Also, you don't have a file extension for the script name like form_handler_mail.pl or form_handler_mail.cgi or .php.
I am having such a problem with the CGI script. I am trying to read up on it but not sure on how to make it work...do you know of any good web site that are for beginners...LOL
I guess my problem lies in the fact I am not sure how to write the script for the CGI
Yes I pay for my angelfire site, and they have been no help when it come to asking questions...You would think that they would be more willing to help with this problem, but I guess not.
