Reset password function error

edited July 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
The function is not working, when i'm trying to reset password, i see this message: "Could not instantiate mail function". Did someone had the same problem?


  • Never mind, problem solved. Sorry for inconvenience.
  • How did you solve the problem? I have the exact same problem now.

    @listisimo Are you doing this on your own server? maybe you don't have a mailer setup? or you didn't set up smtp correctly. check these settings and put in the correct ones in your config.php

        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['UseSmtp']                    = FALSE;
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpHost']                   = '';
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpUser']                   = '';
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpPassword']            = '';
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpPort']                   = '25';

    If changing the above - don't forget to report back.

  • Thanks for your help peregrine. The problem is more serious than I thought. The problem is I'm so far out of my depth I haven't a clue what I'm doing. How do I find a developer who knows all about Vanilla and can set it all up for me? Is there a place where one can request paid for service? I'm happy to pay.
