This script should be generating a parse error.
<?php_track_vars isn't a valid opening tag, that should've generated a parse error.

Try something simple without any Javascript in it:

<form method="post" action="<?= $PHP_SELF ?>">
<input type="hidden" name="variable" value="Post test">
<input type="submit">
<br><br>Posted variables:
<pre><? print_r($HTTP_POST_VARS) ?></pre>

If that doesn't work, reopen or ask one of the support mailing lists for assistance

The following script is supposed to send a simple feedback form, and send it directly 
to my mail server, however when I submit a test form, it will say "The requested 
method POST is not allowed for the URL /feedback.php.", when I did exactly what the 
instruction book (Que) told me to do. 


$to = $HTTP_POST_VARS["to"];
$head = $HTTP_POST_VARS["eMail"];
$subj = $HTTP_POST_VARS["subject"];
$body1 = $HTTP_POST_VARS["name"];
$body2 = $HTTP_POST_VARS["type"];
$body3 = $HTTP_POST_VARS["comments"];

mail($to, $subj, $body1 . $body2 . $body3, $header);

<script type="javascript">

As you can see I tried using the <?php_track_vars thing, which still won't work, and 
I've tried various variations of that tag. What is wrong? Unfortunately I don't have 
the php.ini file, because the server is third-party (DotEasy).
