The MU forums have moved to

Be Gentle...No Passwords via email (6 posts)

    Before you say to read the forums, I have been doing it for two days now :-)

    I have wordpress mu running on a LAMP setup. I never received my initial password, so I went into the Db and got the information through myphpadmin.

    Is there something I have to activate on my machine to make the email portion of wpmu work? I am very new to this, but have a great coder in the office with me that is trying to help me here and there.

    I am willing to look at threads and do whatever, but I have been looking and looking.

    If someone could talk to me in regular person talk, I would appreciate any help you could give.

    I am testing on a localhost, otherwise I would post a link.

    We have checked to make sure mod_rewrite is active...

    I tried a email plugin, but it only worked in regular wordpress...

    Thanks for you patience and help :-)

    Got a cPanel/WHM setup?

    You'll probably need to use SMTP, which has been discussed a lot in the forum.

    May also want to check the mail server logs and mail server error logs and see what is occuring

    No cPanel setup that I know of...

    I am looking on how to know if SMTP is running on my machine.

    I will check to see if I can find the mail server logs when I return to work in the morning.

    My next suggestion is to do a fresh install, but I don't know what that is going to help with other than giving me some much needed practice at installation and setting up the database :-)

    Like I said earlier, I was able to find a plugin for wordpress, but it does not work in WPMU.

    Thanks again!
