in thread Add timestamp to helpdesk form

The database location $gbdata needs to be a filepath/filename not a URL
my $gbdata="";

Also the folder has to be writeable by the web server and normally cgi-bin folders are not for security reasons. If you are just learning/testing then try using the /tmp folder, same as the semaphone.

my $gbdata = "/tmp/forms.txt";

    Yea thank you so much I literally figured it out right before coming back here. I just changed the name to forms.txt and it found it. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

      Your next problem will be here

      $type=<GB>; # Assumes that each entry is $prob=<GB>; # exactly 3-lines long... my $time=<GB>;
      because using <textarea name="problem" rows="10 cols="40">
      means the problem text may be more than 1 line.
