I have a form on a website that I would like to have emailed to me once the client submits their information. My experience with databases is limited, so I wanted to find out if there is a way to do this using html or php etc...

The best end result for me would be having the information sent to me in an email. I have a little (and I do mean little) experience with cgi-bin.

matt's script archive has a formmail perl script. this has been much improved on by NMS. google for NMS and download the script

you need to make a few adjustments in the .pl file which will be the location of perl on your server, and you need to know the paths of the involved files on your server aswell. dont forget to set your permissions.

need any help lemme know

You mentioned PHP so google "phorm v3.0". Its free and well documented. You can run multiple forms with it.
