    Unhappy Not receiving any error messages

    Hi,

    I've set up FormMail and have got it working. I now wanted to set up the CSV facility but it doesn't seem to be working and i am receiving no errors. I don't seem to receive any errors by email at all. Even the fm.php?testalert=1 query (by the way i have named my script fm.php) says its sent a test email to me but I don't receive it. Of course this makes it difficult to troubleshoot problems.

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this also and if they were able to find a fix for it?

    yeah lots of people have trouble getting email from their stupid servers from PHP.

    there are test scripts here to help you sort it out

    Did you do a search of the forum for CSV? I just did and got 99 results back. Try that and see if any of that information is helpful. If you were getting results emailed to you and error messages until you added the CSV it is probably something in the CSV setup.

    If you used DW to upload you might look to see if it added any characters like an apostrophy in front of a comment ''''// that will cause a parsing error and lock the whole script up.

    Thanks I will try the other forum. My Formmail has always worked but i have never received error messages, even before CSV. I am using DW, what file are you referring to in which it may have added ""?

    Thanks

    The error messages can be turned on or off in formmail.php. It is around line 4064 on mine.


    PHP Code:
    //
        // ** OPTIONAL **
        // Set ALERT_ON_USER_ERROR to false if you don't want FormMail
        // to send you an alert when a user error (e.g. missing field) occurs
        // on your forms.
        // We recommend you leave this "true" while you debug your forms and
        // either leave it that way or set it to "false" for your production
        // environment.
        //
    define("ALERT_ON_USER_ERROR",true); 
    The DW problem is when it adds an apostrophe in front of a php comment. Do a search in DW for '// and see if you find a problem. It seems to add one with each upload. It should be commented as the above lines of code. Nothing in front of //these.

    The search was in this forum the search for was "CSV"
