xampp + osc + mail

Recommended Posts

Hi, i have osc installed in my local hard drive for testing, running on xampp. all is working except the mail... i get an error:

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:\xampp\htdocs\catalog\includes\classes\email.php on line 522

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\xampp\htdocs\catalog\includes\classes\email.php:522) in C:\xampp\htdocs\catalog\includes\functions\general.php on line 33

 

i have just realised that in the xampp control panel, i had the mercury shutted down, but if i start it, then i cant even load the shop in the browser (going to localhost/catalog/)

 

do i need to to configure something in osc or xampp to be able to use mail while testing?

 

note- in the xampp control panel, i cant check the service checkbox for mercury... (its disabled)... maybe i didnt intelled it properly?

 

thanks in advance

thanks for reply. You mean to ckeck all the *.php files in the shop? or should it work if just the specific page that sends the mail (checkout_process for example) is ok? (just to avoid checking all the shop :))

by the way, how its supossed to work? i mean, installing xampp *should* allow the mail sending to work, or its necessary any configuration?

Did you set up email within your xamp or do you just expect it to work?

 

no, i didnt set up anything... just installed xampp, and then installed oscommerce... the thing is i dont know where and how should i configure it... :) if i start the mercury mail in the xampp control panel, then the shop just dont load... and if i stop it, the shop load ok but, obviously, there are no mail... where should i look for the problem?

 

thanks

 

ps.- i have checked all the php files and they seem to be ok... (=no empty content after the last ?>)

Yes, you are correct.

 

Mercury Mail cannot be easily made to work on a local install. It is a nightmare best avoided, but if you want to persist in trying to use it then look for posts about it on the XAMPP Forums.

ok thanks, then i think i will put the "send email" to false in admin for testing, and activate it when i upload the shop to its final server.

thanks for the info
