    Hi, im new to website designing and am having a problem, i am trying to send a form from my website to an email on cpanel, but i need to put a formmail script in to the cgi-bin,
    i have done some reading and apparently cpanel has its own, is this true if so where do i find it? its not in the cgi bin. here is what i have done so far
    1. i have copied a formmail script and pasted it into the cgi bin. it doesnt work,
    2. i am not sure if i have to replace any fields within the form
    3.i have searched all over for the form and cant i am really stuck,
    any help would be greatly appreciated

    Are you on Cpanel 11?

    If so, go to your Cpanel interface and log in
    - then click on CGI Center
    - then click on Formmail Clone

    It will tell you that your formmail clone path is something like:

    http://www.yoursitename.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi

    Assuming this is installed and your admin/hosting provider hasn't disabled it, you can have your form call the script above (substituting www.yoursitename.com with your actual site of course).

    Assuming it is installed, you can read some documentation on its use at:

    http://www.worldwidemart.com/scripts/readme/formmail.shtml

    NOTE: This is not Matt's Formmail - but his documentation applies here as well.

    If you are sending mail from a form on your site, you may have to send it to an email address in a domain hosted on that machine as well. At least if you are going to use FormMail.cgi
