    Default Cannot find server message

    Hello:

    I'm trying to use the formmail.php script. I've used this same script for many other forms and it works without any problems.

    Well, I upload the script to a hosting company and when I run the following URL:
    http://www.lyndonacademy.org/formmail.php?testalert=1,
    I receive the famous, "The page cannot be displayed" Cannot find server.

    Does anyone have any idea why I'm receiving this message? As I said earlier, this script runs without a problem on other servers but not this one.

    Thanks for your help.

    Did you get that message in your email as a result of the testalet1 or on your monitor? I tried your script and it would not open the php file it did however want me to download it. I did and there was no code in the file. To me that indicates something is very wrong with your script or server.

    Maybe start over on this server with the basic formmail.php and the sample form and see if it is capable of running php or sending email. If everything worked ok on another server I would lean to either the server not able to run the php or your paths are a mess. Trying to access formmail.php directly should only indicate I should not be accessing it not offer to download it.

    Hello:

    I apologize for not responding earlier.

    I received the message on my screen.

    I don't believe there is anything wrong with the script. I have used this script for six different websites on four different servers and the script works with no problem.

    I did some investingating in regard to the server that is causing this problem and I discovered the difference between this server and the other four is the variable sendmail_from has no value. The other four servers have the variable set to me@localhost.com.

    I'm wondering if this is the problem.
