    How do you get a simple form with 7 questions to work on a website on cPanel?

    This line of code is useless

    ACTION="http://web.mit.edu/bin/cgiecho/wwwdev/cgiemail/questions3.txt">

    My server is obviously not on mit.edu

    There is no file in the cgi bin called questions3.txt so I put a blank txt file called questions7 (as there are 7 questions.

    No one seems to be able to make a simple form work.

    wtf?

    My tech support guys got it to work earlier and I've no idea why it quit working.

    they added these files which I cant open,

    cgiemail
    cgiecho

    I tried wordpad and notepad. not that I would know what to change but they come up as goobly gook. No one seems to know how to do this.

    You do not need to do anything special for a form to work on cPanel. It would be helpful if you could post the actual code involved (remove e-mail addresses) so we can see what you are trying to do.

    Since there is nothing special about forms on cPanel, you may also get better results asking on a forum that specializes in site development.
