Hello,

I am unable to send using mail() function. Please see the details.

========

Test mail php file.


]# cat testmail.php
<?
if (mail('[email protected]', 'PHP test', 'This is a test of mail().')) {
echo "Mail successful";
} else {
echo "Mail failed.";
};
?>

Browser output :Mail failed.


==========

Apache Error log:

sh: /usr/local/bin/sendmail-logger: No such file or directory

# ll /usr/local/bin/sendmail-logger
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 169 Jun 25 2013 /usr/local/bin/sendmail-logger*

# which sendmail
/usr/sbin/sendmail

#grep sendmail /usr/local/lib/php.ini
;sendmail_from = [email protected]
; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
;sendmail_path = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i"
sendmail_path=/usr/sbin/sendmail -t ;
;sendmail_path = /usr/local/bin/sendmail-logger

===============


Kindly assist.

Thanks

Hello :)

Do you notice any error messages in the error_log within the script's directory, or in the Apache error log (/usr/local/apache/logs/error_log)? Which PHP handler are you using? Is "Prevent “nobody” from sending mail" enabled under the "Mail" tab in "Tweak Settings" within WHM?

Thank you.

Hello Michael,

The Prevent “nobody” from sending mail" enabled under the "Mail" was enabled. The error message in apache log was 'sh: /usr/local/bin/sendmail-logger: No such file or directory'. I have fixed it by running upcp --force after removing exim from /etc/yum.conf (exclude) . Thanks for your help.

Thanks
Sreeni
