[Pro] Feedback Form & Password Protection *PROBLEM*

Hi Guys

I have been trying to create a ‘Feedback/Contact Form’ and also a ‘Password Protected’ area on 2 seperate sites but am getting the same problems.

Both look fine when I have made them but when I preview them in either Firefox or Safari I get a dialogue box appear asking me if I would like to download the PHP file???

I have put a live file of the feedback form behind my website here: http://www.monkeyheadcreative.co.uk/form/Form_Test.html
When I try to use this live version I get this error message appear : Method Not Allowed
The requested method GET is not allowed for the URL /form/Form_Test-go.php.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.37 Server at monkeyheadcreative.co.uk Port 80

As you can appreciate this is driving me mental and can’t understand how something which should be so difficult I am find so very tough to achieve??? I have followed the steps in the online Knowledgebase and in my Freeway Pro manual but am still getting the same problem!!!

I hope this is understandable as it has been written at a very tired & frustrated time.

Please help before I just give up altogether.

What version of the Action are you using James - we are now at 2.0 and PHP feedback Form 2.0.0 requires a server that runs PHP version 4.1.0 or higher

So if you haven’t got the latest and you have got PHP version 4.1.0 or higher then upgrade the action at http://www.actionsforge.com/actions/view/160-php-feedback-form

Coz other than that the page looks OK - Server problem? are both of these sites hosted on the same server?

Hi David - can’t sleep either eh? LOL

Thanks for the Speedy response.

I downloaded the action this evening so would assume it to be the latest version.

I have contacted my server people to double check that they can service .php files so am waiting for them to reply.

I would assume though that when I preview the file within Freeway it should work rather then offering up this download dialogue box? It really is very strange, and frustrating.

Thanks for your time David – much appreciated.

It doesn’t look like the server is running PHP as I was able to view
and download the -go.php file from the directory listing here;
http://www.monkeyheadcreative.co.uk/form/
The server should be interpreting the PHP code before serving it to
the user which seems like it isn’t happening.

Tim.

FTP a simple text file in your web space called ‘info.php’ (for
example) and add the following text to it;

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Using your browser surf to this file and you should see a whole load
of information about the version of PHP running on the server. If you
see the text you entered into the text file (above) then PHP is most
definitely off and you should talk to your ISP about switching it on.
Now remove the info.php file from your server.

Tim.

Yes, always remove that file from the server! If someone finds or
guesses the URL to a page that returns that info it can be invaluable
for hacking the server.

(The file itself doesn’t need to be called “info.php”, as Tim
indicates. It is the phpinfo() instruction that does the work.)

Hi Tim

I have tried what you suggested but nothing happened, I just got a blank window? My client really wants a feedback form so I need to get this sorted.

I have emailed my server people and they have reassured me that they do indeed compatible with PHP4.

Keith – I have deleted the .php file from the server.

I’m just at a complete loss and getting more and more frustrated with this every minute. All I want is a simple form???

Please help?

I have used PHP Feedback Form quite a few times without a problem,
except once on a Windows server, but I have recently switched to
easiForm and it’s companion, easyCaptcha, which you can find at:

http://www.easibase.com

It’s easy to set up (or switch your existing forms), it works and,
although it costs a small licence fee for each domain, you can test it
before paying your money.

The cost is low enough to even pay yourself it it solves hours of
workarounds you can’t charge!

Sounds like a server side problem. Out of my league, sorry.

PHP pages can’t be previewed locally without setting up proper
PHP-enabled web serving on your Mac. The simplest solution would be
to upload and test from a regular web server.

I still get the ‘Would you like to download this PHP file and open
it with GoLive’ dialogue box???

I don’t use Easy Form, but it could be that you’re not setting it up
correctly. But first do try it on a web server that can run PHP.

Aah. You will never be able to preview a PHP page in Freeway (unless
Freeway grows that capability as some other Web dev apps have done).
The reason is that PHP files have to be run through a server (running
the PHP application) before they turn into something that a Web
browser (and Freeway’s preview pane is just a Web browser after all)
can read.

This isn’t Freeway’s fault, or yours. And the solution is really quite
simple: upload to your server, and look at it from there. If you
really need to test the layout before letting the world see it, then
upload to your server in a new folder–something like http://yourserver.com/asfdasdas/test.php
that nobody will ever guess-- and look at it there.
