Send email via website in way of SMTP on linux server


Recommended Posts

Hello Gentleman,


I am a user of oscommerce for about 3 year.

I want to share my experience on set up of SMTP mail sending method. because I searched a lot before make it work on my server but can not find a working contribute.


My server is Linux CentOS, PHP, nginx, mysql.

and don't installed Sendmail

So I have to find a way to send email via the website's php mail function.


my experience is, you can not config php.ini to make website's email work on linux server.


you must find a third-party developed contribution, I introduce PHPMailer

download it from http://code.google.c.../downloads/list


install very easy. just follow the example from README



at your code editor, open includes/classes/email.php

find if (EMAIL_TRANSPORT == 'smtp') { at line 519

add the example code from README file


and change coresponding line. like host, username, password.


at last, comment out return mail


go to your webpage and have a try.

that's all.




Thanks the developer.


I just want to share this.


Have a nice day.
