For the convenience of our customers all servers have a copy of version version 1.92 of Matt Wright\'s popular FormMail script preinstalled in the cgi-sys directory. This script is available for use on all accounts for the easy creation of web-based email forms.
To use this copy of FormMail.pl you need to use either of the following as the "action" in your form code:
FORM ACTION="/cgi-sys/FormMail.pl" METHOD="POST"
Things to Note
- Unix is cAsE sEnSiTiVe, when using the above actions one must spell "FormMail" exactly as posted above, capitalizing the F and M.
- When using the FormMail script available globally in the cgi-sys directory one must use an @domain email address on their account hosted on that server in order for the script to function.
- Be aware that you will not find this particular script located in your account, nor will you see a "cgi-sys" folder. This is a server wide alias to a single script which is available globally on all accounts.
- In most cases the form action will work either with or without the initial slash (ex: /cgi-sys/FormMail.pl or cgi-sys/FormMail.pl) however if one should encounter problems with one path they should try the other.
To see an example FormMail script using /cgi-sys/FormMail.pl see the "Simple FormMail script example" FAQ under this same topic.
