sendmail problem - sending mail from php

Postby Bobdude » 03. June 2007 19:15

Hi, i have a hard time sending email from my php forms in my site.

I run xampp on linux VPS centos doesnt come with sendmail or any other mail server.

I tried to install sendmail... but its too hard for me and i gave up, i tried to install postfix and qmail, but it seems that for the reason that my OS is "minimal" i cant procceed with the installation of those cause i dont seem to have the compilers gcc and cc etc..i couldnt install those either.. in few words i failed for that too :oops:

I want a simple way to install any mail server to use with my php.ini so i can send mails from my forms, like xampp, simple and easy! 8)
extract&get it to work! :P

I recommend you install and configure Postfix. I dont use CentOS so I'm not sure how you would go about installing it but that's what works best for me in Linux.

When all else fails (but before you change your o/s) you can use something like which will give you the ability to send mail from php (html) forms.
