Mail, E-Card and Forget password reminder do not function
« on: March 04, 2011, 05:25:03 am »

Hi, I just install Coppermine and everything works except for sending mail, e-card and forget password reminder. Please let me know what file should I modify and how exactly should I modify? I would like to add meta keywords, meta description to my Coppermine Gallery Home Page and change the default Logo as well. Could you please let me know the steps?

Thanks.
Ben.

Maybe your server doesn't support to send emails? What are your email settings?

That's a totally different question. Please respect our board rules.

My SMTP host address is mail.zaiawn.com. I install other scripts like Noah's classified, Forum etc. and the mail function is working fine.

Try to use sendmail if your server supports it. Just delete the SMTP settings to use sendmail.

My hosting provider provide a one click installation of CPG through "Softaculous". I did not see any SMTP configuration during installation and I am sorry that I do not know how to go through this. Could you please let me know the CPG file (code) where I can change this settings? How exactly should I do this?

http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/auto-installers.htm

You can change that settings in the config. Seems that you haven't read the docs nor ever looked at the config. Please do that now.

I download the script from Coppermine website, installed it manually as directed by the Coppermine Guide. The installation was smooth and successful, but still the same error, mail function does not work.

I take a look at mailer.inc.php and my SMTP is as below. Do I need to prefix "ssl" or "tls", how exactly should I prefix? Is it like this "ssl:mal.zaiawn.com"?

 /**
   * Sets connection prefix.
   * Options are "", "ssl" or "tls"
   * @var string
   */
  var $SMTPSecure = "mail.zaiawn.com";

Don't edit the source code - set the SMTP info in the config page.

I am sorry I do not quite get what you told me. If you are talking about the php file, I do not have the exact "config.php" file but I have "include/config.inc.php", is this what you are talking about? If so how would I set the SMTP, could you please show me example? Or, if I am told to change from my administrator's page, I do not not have the SMTP setting under the config option. I have "Keyword manager, Plugin manager, Bridge manager, Update database" only.

Click on the word 'Config' and you'll see Coppermine's configuration page.
