Step 4: database / email info v2.09
we are almost done. now you need to provide an email address to which the form data will be sent when someone fill it out. you will also be required to provide the url of a thank you page. you can also have the form data inserted into a file based database system that will be created by the program automatically. this is a great feature for those without access to a mySQL database since it provides the same functionality. furthermore, you can also have the form data inserted into a mySQL database table. if you choose to do so, then you will be required to provide database connection information, and other bits of information. once that is done, please make sure that the forms directory (and everything in it) has read+write access. you can achieve this by issuing the following command on linux/unix:
chmod -R 777 forms
