The form submits to a cgi script for handling it; what does that do? Your problem probably lies in said script.

Oh, well is there another script i can use?

If in your code it says the cgi link you must have one beacuse that is the control centre of the script.

A form handler script is tailor made to handle a particular form and process the form data in a particular way; you cannot just use any old script.

What server side scripting languages does your hosting provider support? Nowadays, many provide PHP, and a--simple--form handler could be written in PHP without too much hassle. Since you already indicated you want to store the submitted data in a database of sorts: what database solutions are available?
