forgotten password not sending email

forgotten password not sending email

Hi

I've run the wizard to create login/registration/reminder pages; the first two run successfully.

However, the forgottenpassword.php does not send any email; if you enter a non-existent address, the 'not found' message appears, so it is communicating with the database. However, enter a correct address and the page just goes blank and nothing else happens. The URL doesn't change to the login page and no email is sent.

I've tried the various things gleaned elsewhwere iin the forums and have tied ticking and unticking the 'additional header' box, all to no avail.

Emails sent from other pages on the site wok fine, so I don't think it's a server issue.

Any help much appreciated

Cheers

Chris

if it is showing a blank page, it means a php error has occurred, but error reporting is not enabled.

add the following code at line 1 of the page to turn error reporting on:

php:
<?php 

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>

Hi Jason

Thanks - sorry for the delay, I thought I'd already replied!

Error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: session_commit() in C:\Home\r\o\rotuki\www\webassist\security_assist\mail_php.php on line 238

send a copy of your forgot password page please, also, what version of php is the server running? it looks lie it is an older php version, you should see if the host will upgrade your server to php 5.3

$WAFV_Errors = "";

to:

$WA_MailObject = WA_SecurityAssist_Definition("smtp.domain.org","25 ","","","","");
