Re: [tlug] Testing email functions within PHP on my local machine

Josh, Darren,

Thank you for responding.

I tried typing sendmail at the command prompt, and at first it didn't work. So I installed sendmail-bin with apt-get.

Then, I used the locate command to find the sendmail program, which seemed to be /usr/sbin/sendmail.

In the php.ini file, I uncommented the sendmail_path argument, and added the path:
; For Unix only.  You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail

Then I went to Firestarter to open the port to accept connections at port 25, but only from from localhost.

Lastly, I restarted Apache.

And it seems to work. At least, I'm not getting any "unable to connect" errors.

I'm concerned about this 700r'd thing that Josh warns of. What does that mean, and have I protected myself against it with my firewall?
