    it's not a PHP issue.

    It's a webserver configuration issue : it's configured to not allow the post-method for your directory. Maybe try the 'get' method or else contact your host.

    as raf said, its probably a server problem like a mis=configuration or something. However, having said that, I once encountered the same error when I was testing a cgi script i was coding. I changed the file permissions to 755 and then all was well and it worked, but usually if the chmod was wrong you would get a internal server error (500) error...

    anyway, hope it works out ok

    Like a said before, it was a premade script so I really am not sure how to go about fixing this problem, if you could tell me what to change I would greatly appreciate it.

    Did you check your httpd.conf file? And check for what they had posted? Might be the same thing.
