    orderform script error

    I have an html form that calls a script (matt's formmail) and it doesn't like the referer (You do not have permission to execute this script).

    It works when I call it from an unsecure location (http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/formmail.cgi). However, I'm using the shared certificate from my host (https://host5.my-web-host.com/mydoma...n/formmail.cgi) for secure processing and the formmail.cgi doesn't like it coming from there.

    I've tried every combination of entries I could think of in the @referers line but to no avail.

    Anyone familiar with this that could give me a few pointers.

    Thanks

    yes, if I remember correctly, just make it so anyone can use it, like leave the refferer portion blank...

    Thanks,

    It turns out the problem wasn't mine after all - the hosting company had the server configured so that cgi files couldn't be called through the secure link (don't ask me why). They fixed it and it works fine now...
