HOOK_DIR Setting

This page documents the HOOK_DIR configuration setting in FormMail.

Type Of Setting

HOOK_DIR is an OPTIONAL setting, which means...

OPTIONAL : you can change this setting if you need to, but the default value is fine for most circumstances.


Sets the directory/folder for your hook system scripts.


Set HOOK_DIR to a directory/folder path on your server where you store include files for the FormMail Hook System.

Note that this setting has to be a directory (folder) path, not a URL.

If set to an empty string (the default), the Hook System is disabled.

NOTE: on Windows servers, use '/' instead of '\' or double the '\', like this:




Default Value

$HOOK_DIR = "";


$HOOK_DIR = "/home/mysite/public_html/fmhooks";
