I need help with FormMail Can't Post

I have taken some code from YForm.cgi. This code was the appending to database feature. I included all necessary varaibles and functions. I created the formres.dat on the server and updated my html to set all variables for the database. I added this code to my ntformail.pl script. When I fill out the form everything runs smoothly but then when I go to download the .dat file to see the results, its still empty. Could this be because I might not have write permission to the direc and file? Wouldn't i get an error if I didn't. If you want I will send the script. Appreciate it all. Thanks.

Re: I need help with FormMail [In reply to] Can't Post

 
If your on a Linux/Unix server set you permissions (on all files that have to be written to) to 777 and don't forget that the file folder that the file is in also has to be set to 777. But it is a better idea to set write able files to 777 and folders that contain write able files to 773 so that you can't view everything in the folder by typing something like http://yourdomain.com/filefolder.

If that doesn't work post the script that writes to the file.

I got in touch with my Server Admin and he said the file had Write abled. So below is the code. I really appreciate this.

Re: I need help with FormMail [In reply to] Can't Post

 
Sorry for the delay I took a look at it last night and I must have over-looked the code where the data base is opened. But the code looks fine. I can't see why it isn't writing anything. I can only suggest that you change

open(database, ">>$Config{'data_filename'})

To the full path to the file. ex.

open(database, ">>/home/folder/yoursite/cgi-bin/$Config{'data_filename'})

And just check permissions one more time. Just try setting permissions to the folder it is in to 777 and the file also, if the full path doesn't work.

But as far as I can see the syntax is correct.

Good Luck, Let me know if that works.
