Having made a contact form, i now need a program to make it work. I have only heard of two which is Xampp and Apache, which is best or are there others?
Now a silly question, but i don't know the answer,
when the program is installed, does dreamweaver write the code for me for the contact form or do i have to do it myself (don't laugh)
For a local testing environment apache is included in the Xampp package. Personally I prefer the wamp package but it's a matter of choice, they do the same things. And no the code will not write itself. You can either write it or use an available solution (there are plenty of form mail scripts out there). All these programs will allow you to do is have a local testing environment before you upload the files to the web where they are live.
very helpful, thank you very much
