Hi.

I'm working on a contact form for my website. I've done this earlier this day and then all of it works fine, I received mails with questions that were filled in in the contactform. When I quitted Dreamweaver and took a look a couple of minutes ago I did get this error when I want to submit de contact form: {"code":"MethodNotAllowedError","message":"POST is not allowed"}

What did I do wrong? I'll put the HTML and PHP down here.

HTML:

<div class="col-md-6 col-sm-6 col-xs-12">

  <form name="contactform" method="post" action="send_form_email.php">

<table width="450px">

<td valign="top">

It's some kind of link where I got the form code from. I already deleted it, but it has nothing to do with te error.

At a guess you maybe trying too process a php page locally without having a local server set up?

I think so. I filled in my server settings in Dreamweaver, but I don't really know.

Are you trying to view your pages locally, if so have you installed a local server like Mamp on your computer to parse php files and are your site documents in the http docs folder of your local server, does any of that sound familiar?
