I'm trying to get formmail encoder working on a shared Apache/Linux host (fatcow is the host).
The form works without the encryption; I ran into security issues trying to use the regular encode / popen() interface, so I'm trying the $SOCKET_FILTERS with httpencode to see if I can get it working.
Here is my current error state:
So, it looks like POST is being disallowed to /cgi-bin/fmencoder
The following error occurred in FormMail :
Error=Filter "httpencode" failed (missing __OK__ line): <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<TITLE>405 Method Not Allowed</TITLE>
<H1>Method Not Allowed</H1>
The requested method POST is not allowed for the URL /cgi-bin/fmencoder.<P>
What is the next step? Do I need to contact the webhost and check with them? Is there a way to try and see if I can overcome the limitation with a directive in an .htaccess file?
Surely POST can't be denied to anything in /cgi-bin/, otherwise what's the purpose of allowing execution of scripts in /cgi-bin ?
Thanks for any help, and thanks again for making your great program available.
