Error Code being Generated in Simple Conatct Form

Error Code being Generated in Simple Conatct Form

Greetings,

I have created a simple contact form, but when I attempt to access it, I keep getting an error "Fatal error: Call to undefined function virtual() in \wwwroot\ContactUs.php on line 1" which is <?php virtual("/webassist/form_validations/wavt_scripts_php.php"); ?>. The url is www.eiselstecykafc.com/contactus.php

The page works fine on the virtual server (xampp). Both the test server and remote server are using the same PHP (5.5.8). The form was created using DataBridge v1.1.8.

I'm a bit of a newbie with php, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

change:

php:
<?php virtual("/webassist/form_validations/wavt_scripts_php.php"); ?>




to:

php:
<?php require_once("webassist/form_validations/wavt_scripts_php.php"); ?>




Dreamweaver is using the "virtual" syntax because in your Site Definition, the "Create Links Relative To:" option is set to Site. If you change that to "Document" instead, Dreamweaver will use the "require_once"syntax.

So do you advise changing the site definitions to document than site, then make the modifications?

I assume I would make the modifications to all entries that used the virtual tag.

Thanks so much!

you should change the site settings so that the problem wont happen again.

to fix the current page, change the virtual function to require_once and adjust the paths to be document relative.

Thanks - form loads correctly now!

Now I'm receiving a HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error after submitting the form - if it's not one thing its another :)

Have any ideas why?

thats a generic error used when error reporting is turned off.

to turn error reporting on, add the following code at line 1:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>



once we know what the error is, we will be able to troubleshoot the cause.

This is the error code I got from my testing server:

Warning: require(Block_3.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\webassist\email\mailformatting_php.php on line 151

Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required 'Block_3.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\webassist\email\mailformatting_php.php on line 151

No code is being generated on the remote server - just the 500 error

If I but the Block_3.php in the C:\xampp\php\PEAR folder, there are no errors, but I would have no idea how to do that on the remote server (directory structure is \wwwroot\)
