View Full Version : [ubuntu] html & formmail

January 1st, 2010, 06:48 PM
I'm trying to create a 5 pages based web page.
My problem is that in one of the pages there must be the option of contact us. For that the user must fill in a form and then that form will be sent to an email account( in this case my email).
For this im trying to use the FormMail script. Here starts the problem. The main pages and the other pages will go in the folder, and i have inserted a cgi-bin folder into the main folder.In this folder I have copy the Formmail.pl(with all the permissions).
In the page where the form is i have put this header:
<form action="/cgi-bin/FormMail.pl" method="POST">
and then in the FormMail.pl i have put the mailprog like this:
$mailprog = '/usr/sbin/ -i -t';
i have also tryied with this:
$mailprog = '/www/wp/' (here i have all the pages)
the problem is that with some configurations when i fill in the form and i send it, the option of downloading the form runs...
otherwise i receive the following problem:
