Formail.asp in Apache not working

Posted on 2009-07-14
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I am trying to move websites from a front page server to our new linux with open suse 11 and plesk 9.2.1.  I am aware that the plesk does not support front page extensions.  However when I move lets say a basic site that only true front page comes out is like contact us forms.  So I have deleted the front page code and made a simple formail.asp.  Our server has apache asp installed so I am not sure why this is not working but here is the code below and also the error messages with my form from the plesk server...

Try to change from
With cdoConfig.Fields
    .Item(sch & "sendusing") = 2 ' cdoSendUsingPort
    .Item(sch & "smtpserver") = "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX"
End With


cdoConfig.Fields.Item(sch & "sendusing") = 2 ' cdoSendUsingPort
cdoConfig.Fields..Item(sch & "smtpserver") = "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX"

If the Error messages for line 21 are gone after that I would say that your Apache ASP does not know how to handle the with block. Then you need to change the with blocks to direct definitions.

Another suggestion is that there is something wrong with your tabs or blank spaces, try to delete the blank lines and the tabs and reformat your code.

Oh, and it looks like the Apache ASP can not handle your comments, try to remove all comments would also be a good test.
