in reply to Form Stopped working

When the error occurs, what does the web server's log file say about the problem? Almost always, the answer is in the server's error log.

    This only said Internal Server Error, contact administrator about the problem...

    Thats the first thing I look for, a message in the error, but this didn't give any hints.

    "curly" quote killed the script. Typo.

      What happened when you contacted the administrator? On a serious note, the webserver error logs likely contain the relevant information. "All I did was go in and change the email addresses that the results should go to". It's important to be able to limit the scope of what you change, and check that nothing else has been altered by accident. Keeping an original and an edited version, comparing them with diff (or similar tool) is very handy.

      Do you have access to the server command line? You can check the syntax of a script without running it with the -c flag.

      #11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.
