Hi Experts -

I tried to search google for forms that can be installed on a linux machine (for free) and I couldn't find any, I'm sure the keywords that I'm using aren't the best...would anyone out there recommend what they use?

Your request is very open ended and it is difficult to answer without knowing more on what you are trying to do and what you expect to get in answer to your question
A form is not a generic thign - you build it to your requirements
<form action="processform.php" method="post">
   Name <input type="text" name="name" />
   Telephone <input type="text" name="telephone" />
   Email <input type="text" name="email" />
   <input type="submit" />

Open in new window

The above will display a form asking for Name, Telephone and Email. When you click the submit button it will post the results to the script processform.php which will then do something with those values - exactly what depends on what you need done with the values and the script will need to be coded to your requirements.

Validation can happen on the client side using Javascript and / or on the server side in your processing script.

Your question seems to be asking for some sort of component - like RSForms for Joomla.

If you are using an opensource framework there may be a plugin you can use but we can't advise without knowing more about what you are using.

If you are developing your own code then you will need to code the form yourself - there may be some generic code out there that will allow you to automatically process forms - but again without know what you intend to do difficult to comment
