    This is happening on my FreeBSD box, running the latest cPanel v 8.8

    When making any form with any type, and pushing the submit button, it doesn't work unless I put <FORM method="GET"

    The problem with the GET method, it can't handle large forms. One of my clients already complained about his forms break using GET method

    I've had this problem since I got the server installed with cPanel, I worked around it in the past by removing cPanel FormMail and installing Matt's FormMail, but it is pain in the a$$ because i've to add the domains manually!!

    How can I resolve this problem ?? cPanel overwritten my old FormMail files when upgraded to v 8.8

    any help is appreciated

    resolution

    I found out the resolution to this problem

    You can't use the FQD in the action="" line

    so action="http://www.domain.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.pl"
    will not work using POST method

    you need to use;

    action="/cgi-sys/FormMail.pl"

    only for it to work using the POST method. At least this is the case on my server, any opinions ??
