Re: XOOPS 2.0.9 Email Notification Died

Before I begin I should point out that my original post about this was in reaction to a number of new registrants on my sites, who complained that they never received their notification to activate their new account.

After my original post here I dropped the server XOOPS version back to 2.0.7 and everything was OK. So, at least I knew it was (is?) a 2.0.9 issue.

I then put 2.0.9 back and tried a new registration on my home system. I experienced the described problem, ie I never received the notification. However, the registration details were committed into the XOOPS db.

OK, after some messing about and much gnashing of teeth, I established that the problem is related to users' firewalls.

In my case I use Kerio. Other (complaining) users are using Zonealarm and the WinXP_SP2 FW.

Notifications are NEVER sent if the firewall is enabled. (In my case my firewall has been configured to let thru the domains in question)

However, notifications are sent if the firewall is disabled. But that's not really desirable, is it?

The other thing that I don't understand is how come the problem has only appeared in version 2.0.9?

And finally, and most importantly, how come it's only me and my prospective users? Or are we the only ones using firewalls ?


Thanks

I noticed it in the 2.0.9beta. The problem remained on 2.0.9 and now also on 2.0.9.2, which I have just installed.

AFAIK nothing has changed on our host, although a test may be to roll back to 2.0.7?


Thanks

After upgrading the email notification of new registrations no longer works, ie the new registrant never receives their responses.

I have tried PHP (mail), sendmail, SMTP settings. No good.

Any ideas, anyone?

Nothing related to the connection has been changed, so I don't think this is due to the 2.0.7.1 update. It's quite weird.

No, but see my 2nd post. I think it's the hosting service. I'll wait for their response before I panic.

Thanks

On both I now get

Error [Xoops]: Unable to connect to database in file class/database/databasefactory.php line 34


I am unable to log in or get to admin, ie

/www.mysite.com/admin.php or
/www.mysite.com/user.php

returns the above error message

Anything published in relation to XOOPS I have always provided direct (no logon) links for. The stuff available from our website is special interest and not general interest. Least of all to XOOPsers - don't know that there are many here administering cemeteries, crematoria, memorial gardens etc

who's getting just a little tired of having to register at yet another site whenever well-intentioned folks link their scripts, themes etc at xoops.org download page?

Frankly, I reckon it is not in the spirit of xoops.

But I can be wrong, I often am.
