Modifying PHP5.ini to send BB forum mail
I have done extensive research on getting my forum's php mail to work correctly. I saw the error that relates to my problem here: http://community.mybb.com/thread-749...html#pid551799
I have godaddy and the tech told me that the software was most likely trying to send mail from LOCALHOST. He and another tech tested the PHP through their servers and verified that it worked. The advanced dept told him that I needed to create an INI file in my root in order to change the mail settings.
The last post in this thread is what he suggested I follow: http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=749860
I created a PHP5.ini file in notepad with this content:PHP Code:
SMTP = relay-hosting.secureserver.net
sendmail_from = firstname.lastname@example.org
**The mail effort was logged in the admin CP (even after I uploaded my INI file to the root):
