Forms Data

Are there any settings I should know about for publishing websites with forms and retrieving the data from these forms, or does this all lie with the author and the server? I am having trouble getting my form data to its designated file and, unfortunately, the provider through which I am hosting my website has not answered my repeated requests for information. I am new at this, and I just want to cover all my bases.

Hello ...

You may want to look at the following PHP tutorial on how to create a form:

The FTP client has no control over the forms you create. It solely uploads the file with the code (HTML, PHP) you wrote.
