I have a private family web site with a "Contact Us" page which allows the
user to send an email to me. I have been running this web site for about
20 years but always using a Linux server and a Perl interpreter.
Due to a gradual decrease in service from my ISP, I have chosen a new
ISP, uploaded all my videos and slide shows and it's all running perfectly
and I am highly delighted.
The problem is, this ISP only provides Windows servers and I cannot use
my existing 'Contact Us' code. My ISP has told me that PHP and Perl
scripting services have been enabled and should work OK.
I would have prefered to use Perl as I know it so well, but as I need a new
project to keep the "Little grey cells" working to their maximum, I decided
to use and learn PHP as my E-mail script. As I am an 83 year old, I'm not
sure I will succeed but I am determined to try.
I have Installed XAMPP and the Microsoft Visual C Plus and all is OK
except I have no idea what XAMPP does. All I need is a simple email
script for my 'Contact Us' page and I would be extremely obliged if a
member could lead me in the right direction.
Thank you in anticipation.
