Using Webflow designed form on external hosting


I’ve found this post and tried to arrange my form according to it.

I’ve inserted this embed code above the send button

<input type=hidden name="recipient" value="">
<input type=hidden name="subject" value="Web Design request from">
<input type=hidden name="redirect" value="">
<input type=hidden name="required" value="name,email">
<input type=hidden name="env_report" value="REMOTE_HOST,HTTP_USER_AGENT">
<input type=hidden name="sort" value="alphabetic">
<input type=hidden name="print_blank_fields" value="1">

Then I did strictly as this help article from my hosting provider suggests.

But I am getting an error

"The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

Here is my cgi script

And a link to my webflow project

Any hint to where to look at?

Any help will be very much appreciated, I’m not so much into code and all this stuff yet. :hushed:

P.S. I am suspicious of this

<input type=hidden name="redirect" value="">

I don’t get what does formresponder.html in the @cyberdave post stand for.

Thanks in advance!

OK, I’ve realised I forgot to set 755 permission to my formmail.cgi

But anyways, I don’t like how Mike’s script suggested by my hosting provider operates…it redirects me to another page…can anyone suggest good form mailing script that will work with Webflow just like Webflow hosted forms do - so that the form would change it’s state to “Successfully sent” within a page without any redirecting?

I am even willing to pay for that script if that’s around $20-30
