Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: ASP contact form with go daddy hosting

  1. #1

    ASP contact form with go daddy hosting

    Hi everyone,

    I have a client that is hosted by go daddy. he needs a contact form. so i add it, no problem, BUT it doesn't work on go daddy? WHY? they have their own scripts, or limitations or something and of course, they don't want to help - not on the phone and not on their site..

    anyways, does anyone know what can be done? they supply an ASP file called gdform.asp which i think i'm supposed to use. although maybe using my own file might work also? very unclear.

    any ideas/clues/hints???

    thanks a lot!

    Is this person site running on a windows server? If not then you cant run ASP code, as that code can only be used on a Windows Server.

    it's a windows server.
    i am actually considering asking him to transfer to linux so that i can use php. although i imagine that there will be problems with that as well.... but who knows.

    Ask them for full documentation for their own contact form, if they don't help, tell them to "bash their arse" and find a better hosting provider.

    that's another direction i'm thinking of going
