/htdocs/michelle2 is the doc root of the webserver where would it be picking up the 2nd htdocs from?

directory is this, as well as the html files
What does the <form> tag in the calling web page say? From the error, I'd guess it's something like
<form method="POST" action="/htdocs"> ... but please post what it actually contains.

You previously showed us
Code:
[error] (2)No such file or directory: exec of '/cgi-bin/FormMail.cgi' failed
[error] Premature end of script headers: FormMail.cgi, referer: http://xxx.domain.com/corp/tools/feedback.htm
This new error is different, being called from a different web page (presumably an index.htm...unless you are editing the actual error you're getting to sanitize it), which is OK in principle, but can make it difficult to help you.

"File does not exist" is what you'll get if the form tag doesn't contain a valid path to and/or name of an executable script.
The earlier error of "No such file..." followed by "Premature end..." is, again, probably caused by a munged/incorrect #! line.

OK. if DocumentRoot is /htdocs/michelle2 then files in /htdocs/cgi-bin are NOT in the defined webspace. Either change the document root to /htdocs and restart apache OR move the contents of /htdocs/cgi-bin to /htdocs/michelle2/cgi-bin.

And that's where the extra htdocs/ comes from in the error message. The page is calling (DocumentRoot)/htdocs/cgi-bin/FormMail.cgi, which becomes /htdocs/michelle2/htdocs/cgi-bin/FormMail.cgi -- which does not exist. So "File not found"

Again, that's because the #! line wasn't correct.

You are most welcome.

Please tell us what you've changed and where. And maybe why in case it's not obvious to us.

All I changed was the form action path. pointing to the doc root instead of the /htdocs/cgi-bin

So now it says
Code:
<form action="/cgi-bin/FormMail.cgi" method="post"...
yes?
I presume you also changed the #! line to
Code:
#!/bin/perl
in the FormMail.cgi script.

I did a cursory review of the results of a web search for "apache (104)Connection reset by peer:" and saw several issues referenced from httpd configuration problems to networking issues. It might be useful to you to look into those and see which seem to fit your case.

I have never seen that error before...so don't have anything more to add. Sorry.

Aha!
I note that you have references to /htdocs/cgi-bin in your httpd.conf
Code:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin "/htdocs/cgi-bin"
ScriptAlias /cgi "/htdocs/cgi-bin"

AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

<Directory "/htdocs/cgi-bin/">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI +Includes
XBitHack full
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

</Directory>
-- if those are still there, that might contribute. Again, that location for cgi-bin is not visible to the web server if the DocumentRoot is /htdocs/michelle2

So now I've finally got Formail, mailing. I get my thank you reply in browser

but now I'm getting Template not found /templates/testfeedback.html in the recipient email and sender email. The directory and files have the correct permissions and ownership.

There are no errors in the log files (woohoo!)


<td colspan="2"><div align="center">
<input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="webserver.admins@xxx.com"/>
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Source Feedback"/>
<input type="hidden" name="template_name" value="/templates/testfeedback.html"/>
<input type="hidden" name="required" value="Your_Name, Last_Name, YOUR_EMAIL, Feedback"/>
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://thesourceqa.stholdco.com/testreply.html"/>
<input type="hidden" name="email_format" value="html"/>
</div>

I've tried using ../templates/testfeedback.html and ../testfeedback.html still get the same exact error in email. Template not found /templates/testfeedback.html

I've added directory path to the conf file

<Directory /htdocs/formtest2/templates/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI +Includes
XBitHack full
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

still the same error with out without the added directory

I'm glad you've got the script working now, Michelle. If you would briefly recap what you did to make that work, that would help others who might have the same problem.

About the new question:
Where is testfeedback.html actually located? If you haven't changed the DocumentRoot, it would need to be in /htdocs/michelle2/templates/
If you haven't changed the DocumentRoot, /htdocs/formtest2/templates/ is not in the defined web space.

What would you enter in a browser to see that page?

Incidentally, an additional <Directory...> specification is not usually necessary except to allow script execution (ExecCGI), authorization, or to change the allow,deny order (there are probably other reasons to do it, but finding a lost file isn't one of them). Defining a Directory specification outside the web space has no effect or meaning.

The problem with Formmail.cgi not working is server people changed the permissions on the drive that was not allowing me to have form mail set at 755 which it was originally but got changed somehow. gremlins maybe who knows

testfeedback.html is located in the templates directory which is in the doc root formtest2

/formtest2/templates/

/formtest2/templates/
...so you have changed the DocumentRoot in http.conf to /formtest2 from what it was: /htdocs/michelle2? And restarted apache?
