I got a lil job yesterday to simply send some form values by email. Simple enough, done it loads of times. Tested it all out on my server, no probs! Couple of cosmetic changes and put in on clients server. And the problems started!
My first error checking for incomplete fields falled over so I whipped up a phpinfo() page and found they are running PHP 4.0.6. So first off was changing my $_POST variables to $HTTP_POST_VARS and the error checking worked. So checked my inbox, but no mail recieved. Tried a couple of futile tweaks, again no joy. So I decided to create a page with only the mail function in and nothing else.
And still no email recieved Works fine on my server. The client uses their server for much more than public web site, they do some systems analysis or something, so I guess it is part of their server configuration which they have so far tailored to their means, does anyone have any ideas how I could check that their server can actually send emails at all or am I not being compatible with the PHP 4.0.6 or any other ideas?
This is my first job with this client and I was hoping to make a good impression on a simple job but it's just not happening
