A walk-through of a form submission script - how-to and where to put it...
Posted on 2008-10-17
Ok, so here'goes. I'm an audio engineer & tech who fell ass-backwards into a web job. I say that because I can pick up on things quickly, I do understand concepts just not procedure, but, most importantly, I'm learning as I go.
I'm trying to find a sort of stock script or something relatively cookie-cutter that will allow me to submit a form to an email address. I have formmail.asp, and I thought I'd made all of the appropriate adjustments to the script, but apparently not. I can't get the form to submit properly.
The host has been very little help as to what sort of script they would support - they say that they're a "plug-in" site host and "stuff like that" is completely custom and us up to us, the users, to figure out.
Can someone walk me through the process of adjusting the script and tell me where to place the script on the server (i.e. which directory or subdirectory)?
