Hi there,

My form was working fine, I did it some years ago, now get the 404 screen.

My ISP told me .cgi was old, to try PHP.

I've tried to fix it myself and looked around for ideas, but can't manage.

Here are my beginning code for the form:

<form action="http://thatsrightratso.com.au/php-sys/FormMail.cgi" method="post" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" name="details" id="details">

I will include my final lines of code because now it shows up as errors:

<input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Please make a personal reading for me!" tabindex="7">

<br>

     <input name="recipient" type="hidden" value="imp@thatsrightratso.com.au">

      <input name="subject" type="hidden" value="Imp reading request">

      <input name="redirect" type="hidden" value="http://www.thatsrightratso.com.au/confirmation.html">

Can you help me?

Thank you

viewing the filenaming, I supose that your CGI was her eto handle a mail sending....

so you'll have to replace the link pointing currently to the CGI to a new and fresh PHP

and there you'll have two choice (not recommanded) but working is to use the mail() PHP function

PHP: mail - Manual

or as a second and more robust choice, PHP mailer GitHub - PHPMailer/PHPMailer: The classic email sending library for PHP  with some niece piece of code and example there Tutorial · PHPMailer/PHPMailer Wiki · GitHub

does this feed your needs ?

Helen, it's easiest that it seams...

if its so about sending mail... you can decompose the steps

  1. get the field content, in PHP it is really easy... you can do that by getting the name attribute of the field. Now depending on the method used POST or GET, you'll have to store it in a variable
    $name = $_POST['name'] or $_name = $_GET['name']... for the name field
    repeat for all the field used in the mail process
  2. opt for one of the method proposed above... well for testing purpose, use the mail() PHP function
    so once you've got your fields
<?php
     // get all your fields from the form
     // $headers can be optional for testing purpose... you will have to set it depending on your needs
     // all the other variables talk by themselves
    
mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
?>

please, don't hesitate to get back if you need further explanation... or if your form is not complex and heavy, I, or someoneelse on this forum, could write the rought of your PHP file to help you to better figurate it

a first step will be to send on one side the complete form and in a secon the CGI file

Thanks so much Nancy, very helpful.

I'm researching what is best for what I need (and for my capabilities). I really appreciate your help.

Hi again,

I've created the 3 required pages for this (https://myphpform.com/final-form.php) however when I download the phpmailer, the autoload file referred to in everyone's install instructions is not there.

I'm pretty lost actually with this, it seems to be way over my head. In the end this isn't even a serious form, it's just a bit of fun on my website. I made the form originally in Dreamweaver CS6 along with the rest of my website of course, so I had no idea about CGI or anything.

I'm not sure what to do.

If a person creates a form in the latest Dreamweaver now, what does it use for it's forms?

Thank you.

Forms are HTML code.  However, the form processing script will depend on which software you have on your server - PHP, ASP.net, Perl, Python, ColdFusion, etc...

Ask your hosting provider if they have a form-to-email script you can use. 

Failing that, use a service like WooFoo -- Online Form Builder.
