I'm using the following script to get feedback from my users,

<?php
if($name) {
$name=$_GET['name'];
$email=$_GET['email'];
$subject1=$_GET['subject'];
$row=$_GET['row'];
$phone=$_GET['phone'];
$event=$_GET['event'];
$eventdate=$_GET['eventdate'];
$section=$_GET['section'];
$ask=$_GET['ask'];
$quantity=$_GET['quantity'];
$message=$_GET['message'];
$ip=$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"];
$host = gethostbyaddr($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);
$host = $ip.".".$host;
$mon=date(m);
$day=date(j);
$year=date(y);
$hour=date(g);
$min=date(i);
$sec=date(s);
$hour=$hour-2;
if($hour<=0) { $hour+=12; }
$ts = "$hour:$min:$sec on $mon/$day/$year";
$to="******@hotmail.com";
$subject="Tickets For Sale: "." $event";
$body="
Offer From: $name
E-mail: $email
Phone: $phone
Event Name: $event
Event Date: $eventdate
Section: $section
Row: $row
Quantity: $quantity
Asking Price Per Ticket: $ask
Additional Comments: $message


Host: $host
Time: $ts";

mail($to, $subject, $body);
echo "<script>location.href=\"selltickets1.php\"</script>";
}
 ?>

if(isset$_GET['name']) {

because some servers used to have

$_GET['name'] was the same as $name
but that setting is probly turned off.
So just change that first bit and u should be sweet!

What do you mean by "it doesn't work"? Are there any errors? Is your site being displayed?
You've asked what do you need to enable in apache. Is your code is just displayed with all <?php ?> stuff? Then you have to install php on your server (or if you have already installed - edit your httpd.conf according to php readme). Could you post more informations?

Wildzero, that didn't do the trick. Trakos I'm asking if I need to enable email on the server. PHP is installed. Site is working but email isn't sent.

If you haven't already, you need to configure your php.ini. Check examples at http://www.sitepoint.com/article/advanced-email-php
