Hello Everyone,

I am having problem with a form a new site I setup.
I test on my pc and other website and I do not get any errors.

But when its live on this site http://backroadjourney.com/form.html I get this


/backroadjourney.com Mailform Error

http://backroadjourney.com/form.html is not allowed to access this script.

The site is setup as a Suddir on
sundaydriver.com

The URL to the script is wrong. You can't go one directory up from http://backroadjourney.com . I think the script is here http://backroadjourney.com/cgi-bin/mailform.cgi . I.E. you could use cgi-bin/mailform.cgi or /cgi-bin/mailform.cgi but NOT ../cgi-bin/mailform.cgi .


CODE
<form NAME="Complimentary_Brochures for NY"  action="../cgi-bin/mailform.cgi" method="post">

You haven't updated the page but I loaded the form locally and corrected the URL to the script and it seems to work. If I don't fill the fields I'm told I have to do that. When I do, it looks like the form submits and I'm redirected to the front page.

If you receive my contribution I wrote "test" everywhere and http://htmlhelp.com in the URL field. wink.gif

Someone who knows the mailform program you're using will need to help you figure out how to call it correctly.

I (obviously) used the script on your server when it seemingly worked. Did you receive my submission?
