Form to Database
For Linux/Unix serversFTP programs ("clients") allow you to set permissions for files and directories on your remote host. This function is often called chmod or set permissions in the program menu.
In the first image, look at the last column - that shows the permissions. It looks a bit confusing, but for now just note the sequence of letters:
Right click the folder or files to set permissions, and usually a popup screen will appear (see the second image):
Don't worry about the check boxes. Just delete the 'Numeric value:' and enter the number you need - in this case it's 777 or simply mark all checkboxes. Then click OK.
For Windows servers
There should be an option in your web hosting control panel to set write permissions. If it's not present, you may can contact your web hosting service and request the write permissions for the PHP code.
Change #1: Subject, line #686:
Change #2: From Name (add this one), line #618:
$mail->FromName = $_POST["name-of-the-name-field-on-your-form"];
Change #3: From Email, line #619:
$mail->From = $_POST["name-of-the-email-field-on-your-form"];
Replace the strings marked in red with the field names from your form.
Yes, you can use <select multiple="multiple" ...> and <select multiple ...> tags.
In PHP, to be able to post select multiple fields you need to add the characters  at the end of the field's name, example:<select name="items" size="5" multiple="multiple">
Follow these steps:
#1 - Add the char-set that you are using into your <FORM ...> tag, example:<form accept-charset="iso-8859-1" ...
#2 - Open the file "FormToDatabase.php" and put SPECIAL_CHARACTERS to true on line #99:
#3 - Specify your char-set again on line #101:
<form action="/HDWFormToDatabase/FormToDatabase.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
These attributes are required for forms with "file" fields.
If you want to use an external email server, you can do the following:
STEP 1- Go to Line #850 and configure the Form2Database.php file to send primary via SMTP:
var $Mailer = "mail";
var $Mailer = "smtp";
Note: This first step is required only in a few servers, in most cases Form2Database detects automatically that the available method is SMTP.
STEP 2- Go to Line #65 and put there your SMTP server address if is different than "localhost"
Note: STEPS 3 and 4 are required only if your server required authentication. If authentication is not required, please ignore these steps:
STEP 3- Go to Line #69 to activate authentication:
STEP 4- On the lines #70 and #71 put your username and password.
Yes, it's possible. Add this line below the current line # 734 (into the PHP file):
send_mail($_POST["clientemail"], $fromaddress, $emailsubject, "Thank you!" . $body, $attachments);
In your form "clientemail" is the name of the field where the client enter his email address.
Yes, to do that open the file HDWFormToDatabase/FormToDatabase.php in any text editor (Ex: Dreamweaver in code view) and into the first lines you will see several configuration parameters.
The section #5 of that configuration section (about lines #84..#90) allows to exclude fields from being saved into the database and/or being sent into the email.
Yes, you can send additional copies to other two email addresses (in addition to the default email address).
For doing that, open the file "FormToDatabase.php" in any text editor and at the lines #40 and #41 you will see the following configuration parameters:
...you can set additional destination email addresses there as follows (example):
Download the most recent version of the Adobe/Macromedia Extension Manager or the version related to your Dreamweaver version:http://www.adobe.com/exchange/em_download/
After installed open the MXP file from the Extension Manager menu to be sure that you are installing the extension using the correct Extension Manager.
After accessing that link you will get a copy of the product and a copy of the download link will be sent to your email address. If you have not received the email, please check your spam/bulk mail folder.
If you lost both download links, please contact our support service and we will send you a new download link. Please include the email used for payment in your message;
Moneybookers is accepted in almost all countries.
Please, change the "Links relative to" setting in the site configuration options (Dreamweaver 8 or later).
If this setting does not solve the problem, then follow these steps:
- Restart Dreamweaver
- Be sure that you have a local web site defined in Dreamweaver
- Open the page where you want to insert the extension(this page must be saved previously into your web site)
- Try to insert the extension again
We also accept MoneyBookers (accepts credit cards when uploading funds).
It's required to define a working site in Dreamweaver because Dreamweaver needs to know where to place the files.
Download here a PDF document with help about defining a site in Dreamweaver.
If you are testing your page directly from your local hard disk in IE 7, this message appears:
"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options."
In IE 7 this message appears when you test a web page that contains a script or Flash item directly form your local hard disk. When you upload your page to an online web server that message does not appear.
The address from a web server must start with http:// or https:// . On the other hand if the address starts with C:\ or file:// then you are testing it from your local hard disk.
Just upload your web page to your web site and you will see that the error disappears.
- Check if you have defined a local web site at dreamweaver.
- Check if you have saved the page into your local web site.
- If you are using Dreamweaver templates, check if your templates allow an "Editable Region" in the <HEAD> section of the HTML code.
- Mark the "Use case-sensitive link checking" option in the site settings and recreate your site cache.
- After these checks, please restart your Dreamweaver and try again.
That's due to a bug in the Adobe Extension Manager that sometimes corrupts the "Menus.xml" file. That file can be found in the following location:
Windows users: C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver [version]\Configuration\Menus\menus.xml
Mac users: HD:Users:username:Library: Application Support:Macromedia:Dreamweaver [version]:Configuration:Menus:Menus.xml
To fix this problem close your Dreamweaver and try the following:
- Un-install all your extensions and then re-install them one at a time. This will work in most cases.
- If the above doesn't work then delete the "Menus.xml" file. After this you will need to disable and enable your extensions in order to get the menu entries again.
- If none of the above works then there is more than one file corrupted, the solution in this case will be to completely uninstall Dreamweaver and reinstall it again.
