Hi folks, I am a customer of a web host running Apache. He tells me I can run servlets off my hosting, and that all I need to do is upload the servlet to my main folder using FTP, then use SSH to move this file into a virtual folder called "jsp", which I have also done. My HTML form simply posts 3 params to the servlet, which should return them for display in the browser. Nothing amazing, not trying to save the world here, just trying to plumb my servlets on this hosting. Now, he hasn't been much help, not knowing Java and all. My ACTION tag in the html looks like this (the actual domain name has been changed to protect the innocert): FORM ACTION="http://www.myURL.com/ThreeParams" The html file is located in another directory. That, I can safely say, works no problem. But as soon as I hit Submit, I get a 403 error. Assuming that my java has no synax errors (after all, I don't make java syntax errors), does anyone have any suggestions (other than turning to drink?). Any help would be greatly appreciated. All I want to do is run a servlet off this thing... Reilly
hi reilly can u ask to have a look at the log access from him? then u can probably drill down more to see what is causing the problem.... also u might ask him to give u restart access from the prompt so that u can have better view of things... else i don't know the way out...its difficult to work things this way... i guess u made sure that ur servlet is working fine when hosted in YOUR environment (u can test it in ur env first and make sure there is nth silly on ur part)... regards maulin
