Unable To Change Admin Email Address - WPMU 2.6 (11 posts)

    Hello,

    I have setup a number of blogs using my own email address (private MU system), however, I am unable to change the amdin email address within each blog. It indicates that changes have been saved, however, no verification email ever arrives.

    I do get all other email notifications (ie. comment moderation, new accounts/blogs setup, etc. etc.), however, not the admin email change one.

    Might there be a workaround for this (ie. DB hack)?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Yes, you can always edit the email field in the db...

    I found that for my main blog, the only way to change the email address was to go into Site Admin > Blogs > Edit and change the email address there.

    I have found exactly the same issue. Editing through Site Admin indeed does the trick as a workaround but neither me (admin) nor blog owners can change their admin address the normal way. No confirmation e-mail is sent and I cannot find any related messages in the server error log.

    What is wrong ? Is this some server setting causing problems ?

    Is anyone still having this problem? I am on WPMU 2.7.x I've checked my mail server and everything is working, except changing a blog admin email via the General Settings page. It's driving me nuts!

    Please help I am running wordpress on a shared server. That has cpanel on the backend.

    So I don't get it when you say go to
    "Site Admin > Blogs > Edit"

    Do you mean the cpanel admin or the wordpress admin at "...com/wp-admin"

    If either one of these I am not seeing links like that, if I were to go to the PHPMyAdmin what table would I look for?

    By the way I did the obvious change in wp-admin under settings / general settings.

    If you look at the WPMU backend, there's a menu there called "Site Admin".

    That's the one.
