In the FAQ part of this website is written, that you have to create the php.ini in order to get mail() worked. For more information go to the website. Greetings Klaus

  • PHP.INI - correct path

    Unfortunetly for me the Entropy site specifies a path (/usr/local/lib/php.ini) that did not work for my system (OSX.1.4) - the path that finaly worked is /usr/lib/php.ini

    Take a look at the output of a <?php phpinfo() ?> - item six (Configuration File) specifies where your instilation is looking for the php.ini file.

    Thanks! We tried it and it works, however, has anyone noticed a slow response on mail forms? Everything else seems very fast, PHP or not - but the mail forms can take up to 15-20 seconds even for a very simple form.

        Do this:

        Make the directory first

        sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/lib

        Then make the file and restart apache

        sudo touch /usr/local/lib/php.ini

        and BiNgO you have a PHP.ini file ;-)

      I created /usr/local/lib/php/php.ini containing
      [mail function]
      SMTP =
      sendmail_from =

      and restarted apache, but I still can't get mail() to work. Any tips?

        Did you ever get your mail() function working? I'm trying the same thing and so far can't get it working. I have managed to get the sendmail to send a command directly, but when I try it with PHP and mail(), I get a message in /var/log/mail.log that reads gethostbyaddr( failed: 3. I do have the PHP.INI file as described above and my test.php script shows it being set properly.
