This sounds a lot like you are in an old-style CGI environment, where
the PHP files are run through a CGI interpreter rather than being
parsed within Apache’s response loop as is normal.
So which php files need to be edited, and where should the edits be
uploaded to remain permanent, or must the files be changed every
time Freeway is uploaded.
PHP FF creates a single handler file for each form that you attach it
to. This file is named yourformpage-go.php, where yourformpage is the
filename of your form page. If you are in such a CGI environment,
where PHP files need to have certain executable bits set, then you
would only adjust this -go.php file and you could ignore all others.
Alternatively, what information needs to be given to a stubborn ISP,
so that their Server can be adjusted to handle our php Feedback Form
Their server should provide a standard PHP environment, utilizing
mod_php under Apache 1.3 or PHP installed as a DSO (dynamically shared
object) under Apache 2.2. In that case, PHP files will Just Work™
without any funny permissions or other requirements. As long as they
are set the same as your other HTML files, they will execute within
the confines of the Apache security model and all will be right with
Any host who does not provide this baseline functionality should be
re-evaluated, as you can get this level of service from companies
charging less than $20 a YEAR for the privilege.
