Upgraded to PHP5 now can't get mail to work!

Recommended Posts

I updated to run PHP 5.16 on Apache 2.0.54  - I have tested it and it is running, I get the right version using phpinfo() and it the php files load in the browser fine.

BUT, I am having trouble with mail. I used to get the mail function to work under php 4 using the following in the PHP.ini file:
[quote]
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = mail.xyz.net

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from = myacctname@xyz.net[/quote]

Now when I try to process a feedback form that was working under PHP4 I am getting the following warning/error:

[quote]Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in C:\Documents and Settings\RLane\My Documents\Web Sites\Localhost\InDevelopment\Wellington\Source\04\processfeedback.php on line 14[/quote]


The code in processfeedback.php is as follows:
[code]
//create short variable names
  $name=$_POST['name'];
  $email=$_POST['email'];
  $feedback=$_POST['feedback'];

  $toaddress = 'myacctname@xyz.net';
  $subject = 'Feedback from web site';
  $mailcontent = 'Customer name: '.$name."\r\n"
                .'Customer email: '.$email."\r\n"
                ."Customer comments: \r\n".$feedback."\r\n";
  $fromaddress = 'From: myacctname@xyz.net';

  mail($toaddress, $subject, $mailcontent, $fromaddress);
[/code]



Any ideas what I need to modify to make it work?

Make sure you have restarted the server when you changed the SMTP server details in the php.ini

Can you confirm that php in using the correct php.ini by running the phpinfo function in a php script.

Does the Configuration File (php.ini) Path refelect the correct path to the php.ini you are editing? If it does the does the SMTP (scroll down until you find SMTP in the PHP Core section) row reflect the changes you made to php.ini? If they dont then PHP is not using the php.ini file you're edting.

Sigh!

Not sure... I searched for php.ini  I only find one --- located here: c:/php5/php.ini

C:/php5 is in my path as in: path= %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;C:\PHP5; and then other junk.

I rebooted the system and started Apache.  I ran PHP INFO and get the output below - I do see in there it is looking for php.ini in the C:\windows - so maybe it isn't finding my ini file?? 

The latest recommendations were to keep the ini in the program file and add a path. 
Any ideas from this on how to fix?

Got the mail working! Finally!

Had to copy the php.ini to the c:\windows directory.  Don't understand why since I had the php5 directory in my system path - but now the mail works.

Did you add
[code]PHPIniDir "C:/php5"[/code]
To the httpd.conf file?

I ahve to do that for some reason otherwise it wont read my php.ini file regardless whether I put the php folder into the PATH.

I usually add that line after the LoadModule section. However it doesnt matter where you put it. Glad you got it all working now.
