Hi :) i have a problem, whenever i turn new user activation through email the reload page after i press "Register" takes for ever to reload and say that administrator needs you to activate account through email. On the other hand when i turn that option off it works just fine. I own a VPS and i configured it my self, is there a posiable chance that i reconfigured something and now sending the activation email takes for ever because of that?
If yes than please help.
Does the email actually get sent?
You need to fix your server so that mails can be sent.
Try changing your current nameservers your server uses to resolve addresses. It's possible it's just freaking slow.
You could try cleaning up the DNS, Or it could be simple by the ACP cron times.
Check that the email gets sent by making a test account with an email you own. To me if the page hangs then it's server releated, Maybe slow query causing it or there is a limit in place somewhere, The best thing to do or try is in the SSH window tail the logs and send the mail out to the newly activated account and see what pops up.
The email does not get sent, any ideas how to fix that?
Do you have a mail client installed on your server? Are you using SMTP to send mail??
i am not useing smtp to send mails and i dibt think i have email client.
Try using smtp. PHP email sending is unreliable. Attached is standard settings that should work. The important ones are the ones circled.
How do i know what my smtp username etc is?
