Hi

I'he again.

Ireceived the following message:
Warning: 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:\web\classes\access_user\access_user_class.php on line 391

I did changed the SMTP at php.ini localhost to mail.telepac.pt but still the same message.



Relating to smtp_port how to I know if the 25 is the right value?

I think this smtp host doesn't allow mail relaying, try a different smtp or install a local mailserver.

This is a heavy php problem, I will never move from DSL provider since I know that this could be a problem with other providers

[offtopic] please post only related topics to the access_user forum

I installed Argo Mail Server Freeware 1.8.8.8, Aug 14 2006 and filling up the e-mail field on the page "Please Register" register.php, I wrote my normal mail address.
Because it gave me the following message I do not know what address has to be used.

 Warning: mail(): SMTP server response: 551 User not local. We don't relay in C:\web\classes\access_user\access_user_class.php on line 391

Can somebody explain me why?

What you're trying is hard stuff, there are a lot of cheap hosting companies (if you don't have a hosting yet) learn walking with PHP without this kind of problems and test you PHP applications on a standard linux web host...

I already made a website project, with a single user with password entry and i'm be doing all at localhost.
Do you think that will be dificult to change the one user access for the multiple user access?

No doughts that I have a lot to learn but I was thinking that I could do it.

Just need same help now and then and a few guide lines.

I think you like to learn PHP coding first, setting up a more advanced php enabled localhost will come later.

Or you try to setup everything with mysql, apache, php in the beginning and after month you think "What is PHP difficult" and maybe you stop using php before you have learned to write php code... it's just an advice

I agree with Olaf. Stick with the basics, and then you will be able to do the rest.

Personally I use php for more than 5 years, and even now my development pc has not all the capabillities of the production server, and some times I have to code directly to the server.

My point is that you don't have to have the perfect server environment to work.

lol...


But Nick brings it to the point, it's good to test smaller thing locally (for example writing php functions) but the whole application have to work on a production server.

I'm honest, If my own DSL provider makes changes in the smtp configuration with the result that I can't use the local mail function anymore I will test them online tool.

By the way the most editors are able to ftp publish the code "on save"

Or you can use a more sofisticated tool like smart publisher, which is open source, and can syncrhronize the changes to the files and the databases. Smiley

BTW josil you can also try to use XAMPP from apache friends which is a php server environment very easy to use, and have almost anything you will ever want Smiley
