Question About NMS formmail.pl
« on: March 02, 2004, 09:04:10 AM »
I need to create a form for a website where visitors can enter information and have it sent to a particular e-mail address.  I've looked through the forums and know that Lunarpages requires the use of the script found here:http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/scripts.shtml.  

So far I have one question (hopefully I'll figure this out without any more!):  Does the FormMail.pl file need to be renamed to FormMail.cgi?

Thanks!

No, you don't have to change the extension, I believe, but you want to name it something other than formmail or FormMail.

The idea is not to use the popular name for the file.  Refer to:

Thank you muchly!  I changed the file name, and then uploaded it to the site, and it is working perfectly.  I am shocked and amazed.

I appreciate the help!
