email - How to configure php.ini to work with smtp4dev?
So, I downloaded and installed smtp4dev.
When i try sending a mail in my php file:
mail('localhost', "Hey there", "no");
i get an error from php.ini, complaining that sendmail_from isnt declared.
I tried declaring it:
sendmail_from = [email protected]ost
That made php silent, but still doesnt work - tries to load the page for 30 seconds and then another error. Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded.
How must i configure php.ini for it to work?
[mail function] ; For Win32 only. ; http://php.net/smtp SMTP = localhost ; http://php.net/smtp-port smtp_port = 25 ; For Win32 only. ; http://php.net/sendmail-from ;sendmail_from = [email protected] ; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i"). ; http://php.net/sendmail-path ;sendmail_path = "\"C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t" ; Force the addition of the specified parameters to be passed as extra parameters ; to the sendmail binary. These parameters will always replace the value of ; the 5th parameter to mail(), even in safe mode. ;mail.force_extra_parameters = ; Add X-PHP-Originating-Script: that will include uid of the script followed by the filename mail.add_x_header = Off ; Log all mail() calls including the full path of the script, line #, to address and headers ;mail.log = "C:\xampp\apache\logs\php_mail.log"
Author of smtp4dev here: Sorry, that was probably the following bug: http://smtp4dev.codeplex.com/workitem/6080
Your php.ini looks correct. Try again with the latest release from CodePlex and you should be fine.
My guess is that the "sendmail_from" error happened because even though you have explicitly defined it in your php.ini, you apparently mark it as a comment (That ; char in front of the line)
I think it should be
This is not really the correct answer, but you might also want to check other comment marks on your php.ini =)
Man, I just modified my code like this
