I want to capture the form data in a .csv file. I have followed the directions here: http://www.tectite.com/fmhowto/csvfiles.php
I have a problem when I get to the part about creating the .csv file. I have tried creating an empty .csv in both Edit Plus, and Windows Notepad. In both cases I succeed in creating a 0kb .csv file.
The problem is, I can not upload the 0kb .csv file to my web host's server via FTP. When I try to do so, I keep getting Server Timed Out errors and I am disconnected from the server. The file stays in the transfer queue, and when I reconnect I can see the .csv file appears to be on the server, and my FTP client (Filezilla) keeps trying to process the same file from the queue to overwite the one on the server.
I cancel the transfer, and change the permissions of the file on the server to the required rw-rw-rw- but when I test the form, no data is written to the file.
I then created a new .csv with a single space in it, so it was a 1kb file. i was able to upload it via FTP to the same location with _no_ errors or disconnection, unlike with the 0kb file. However, no data is written to this file either.
My FTP client (Filezilla) does not give me the option to create _any_ files directly on the server (let alone a 0kb txt or csv file), neither can I do it through the web host's backend. I have also never used SSH or telnet before, so wouldn't know how to do it that way.
Can anyone help me?
