Message #1 by "Dan Ostrowski" <dan@t...> on Thu, 18 Apr 2002 20:22:57
Hello. 

I told a friend of mine who was making a site for a non-profit race "make 
a secure form to allow people to sign up with credit cards? sure, no 
problem!" 

What I want to do, bottom line, is take a form, pass it to a php page that 
will write a file or something to hold the info. Then securely connect to 
that info so the people at the office can run the numbers. 

All I know for sure is that the server they are on has a regular server 
(topekatinman.com) and a SECURE SERVER that is located at an address 
like "fate.secure-server.net". (its not that exactly). 

IS THERE ANYONE WHO CAN SHED LIGHT ON HOW TO DO THIS??? I have read a half 
a million articles online and am nearing the end of my rope. 

I have tried thus: 

Connecting to the "secure server" via FTP, but it just shows the same 
stuff on the non-secure server. 

Tried putting up an HTML form and submitting it via the "https://secure-
server.net/receiver.php" with a receiver.php page on the server, but it 
gives me a "forbidden access". 

Tried accessing the secure server. Nothing comes up unless I do a 
https://topekatinman.com and then I get a certificate verfication, but 
nothing comes up. 

PLEASE someone help me. I have looked at all the books I own or could get 
my hands on. I have read soo many articles online. I just need some little 
bit of help... 

Thanks.
