View Full Version : Not Found

10-11-2007, 09:58 PM
I went by the form program online and copied and pasted the html for the thank you page. I changed the email address and subject line. I did not change the 3rd blue line. I uploaded the thank you page and tested it. I received this message:
The requested URL/action.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use and ErrorDocument to handle the request.

What did I do wrong? How can I fix this?

Almost certainly a typing error, or you have mistaken the form action However, without a link to the form page, we can't help more than that.

Sorry about that. www.world-view-travel.com (http://www.world-view-travel.com). It is the Help Us Help You page. I finally figured out how to link documents to the site. That is cool!

10-12-2007, 04:29 AM
Ok, the forms seems ok. How did you actually name the page with the script in it ?

10-12-2007, 04:37 AM
I copied the script from the form tutorial. I put worldviewtravel******.com for the email and Interested in travel for the subject line. I typed Thank you in the page properties box under title:.

10-12-2007, 04:39 AM
Do you mean name the page by saving the page or the title of the page? This stuff so confuses me.

10-12-2007, 04:40 AM
How did you save the page ?

10-12-2007, 04:44 AM

10-12-2007, 04:47 AM
No, you have actually saved it as Thank_You with uppercase Y.

Ok, open your form page, change the form action to be " Thank_You.php" save, republish, and refresh your browser before testing.

Also, I saw your advice on addons and I did that for another one of my websites. Then I went to register.com where it its registered. The DNS numbers are registers because I had it forwarded from my world-view-travel.com site when I was with yahoo.com. I have the forward program for another year. What would be the address I forward to for www.prideoftexas.com (http://www.prideoftexas.com) when that is my 2nd domain?

Would it be: http://www.world-view-travel.com/prideoftexasfestival/index.html?

OMG....You so rock!!! That worked beautifully!!! Thanks!

10-12-2007, 04:57 AM
I am not sure that i correctly understand this question.

If you want to have prideoftexas hosted in the same account as world-view-travel, you should do the following:

1. Add prideoftexas as addon in your account.
2. Go to register.com, and change the nameservers to be those of your VH account.

I dont understand what the meaning of " The DNS numbers are registers because I had it forwarded from my world-view-travel.com site when I was with yahoo.com "

10-12-2007, 05:07 AM
Ok I changed all nameservers. We will see what happens. Thanks!

10-12-2007, 05:17 AM
Please note that normally 24hrs are necessary for DNS propagation. Some times it is complete in just 1 hr, sometimes it may require up to 72 hrs.So be patient.

10-12-2007, 05:00 PM
Ok this is what is happening. Since I have one domain hosted as world-view-travel.com all of my domains are being forwarded here.

www.prideoftexasfestival.com (http://www.prideoftexasfestival.com)
www.tag-itexpress.com (http://www.tag-itexpress.com)

How do I fix this?

Thanks for all of your help navaldesign! The form on world-view-travel.com works perfectly!

I have two forms on www.tag-itexpress.com (http://www.tag-itexpress.com). I have added an upload file part. Since I have two different forms do I need two different Thank you pages and error pages? And on the "Order form" after I hit submit the email arrives at my address but without information and there is a 404 error page. Could you help me with what I have done wrong? Thanks!


10-15-2007, 03:10 PM
I can't seem to find "uploadaction.php", but since this is a separate file, i cannot be sure if it is missing itself or the thank you page provided in the script is wrong (I mean i am not sure if the missing file is uploadaction or the thank you page or the error page).

Also, since i can't see what your script code is (uploadaction.php) i can't suggest anything. Post here all the file names, as you have saved them, and i will have a look again.

10-15-2007, 05:15 PM

I did have uploadaction.php under the main folder before. Now it has been moved under tag-itexpress. I can publish all of the pages if I need to. Or I can give you access so you can see everything.

10-15-2007, 05:47 PM
Ok, use my contact (http://www.dbtechnosystems.com/contact.php) form to provide me your login details. I will look at it later.

10-15-2007, 06:38 PM
Ok thank you so much. I've filled out the form.

10-17-2007, 10:41 PM
The airforce forms both work great! Thanks for helping with those. Now I can't figure out how to make all of the data submitted appear on the emails for :
www.prideoftexasfestival.com (http://www.prideoftexasfestival.com) or
this reigstration page at: www.world-view-travel.com/durangomusicinvitational/index.html (http://www.world-view-travel.com/durangomusicinvitational/index.html).

I copied the registration page and thank you pages from world-view-travel.com but something is missing. Please help. Thank you so much!

The Encoding type of your forms MUST be set to multipart / form data. At the moment it is text/plain. Edit the forms, Save, republish, and Refresh your browser whilst testing.

10-18-2007, 04:49 PM
That worked beautifully! Thank you so much!

navaldesign, I've got another problem to solve. This has probably been answered already numerous times however I couldn't find it anywhere. I want to have a survey form pop up when someone visits the website before they see the home page. They can choose to close the survey or answer it. How do I make it do that? I know I have so have something in the script but I have no idea what.

10-19-2007, 05:09 AM
This has nothing to do with the script. Search the net for a popup generator that cab open a On Page Load popup, and copy the code in your website. That will do the job. I had one somewhere but can't find it anymore.

10-22-2007, 05:22 PM
Ok great. Thanks!

On my Tag-It Express website under the Airforce order Form this warning is shown when you open the page:
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/ydckqmrz/public_html/tag-itexpress/AirforceOrderForm.php:7) in /home/ydckqmrz/public_html/tag-itexpress/AirforceOrderForm.php on line 226

Why is it there? How do I fix it?

Everytime I fix a page and upload it a order form email is sent that has nothing on it. Is there something in the script that is doing this?

10-22-2007, 05:32 PM
You have placed some php code in there. What would that be ? That's where you need to search for the problem

12-16-2007, 07:14 PM
Hi navaldesign. I have developed another site and again am having trouble with the orderform and thank you page. The site is www.trophiesexpress.com (http://www.trophiesexpress.com). I saved the pages as: Orderform.php and Thank_You.php. I named them as Order Form and Thank You. The error 404 page pops up after I submit the order form. Please help. Thanks!

12-16-2007, 07:25 PM
If you have saved the action page (action page means the one with the php script) as Thank_You and published it as php, then you need to change your form action to be Thank_You.php and NOT uploadaction.php. Change your form, save it, publish, and refresh before testing.

12-16-2007, 08:33 PM
Thank you! Everything works great.
