Tech:The password reminder (the E-mail password button) doesn't work

From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

What happens[edit]

Login error:
Error sending mail: error_log(/var/www/wikitravel/upload/shared/debug.log) 
[function.error-log]: failed to open stream: Permission denied

When it happens[edit]

1. Open http://wikitravel.org/wiki/shared/Special:Userlogin

2. Fill in your user name.

3. Click E-mail password.

What should happen[edit]

An e-mail should be sent to the address specified in the account details so I could retrieve my password and upload some images to WikiTravel shared under my username.

Right now I'm unable to login.

Edit: It's not as acute as I previously though. The password reminder is sent. So it's only about the message. 212.186.80.57 15:40, 15 August 2006 (EDT)

How to fix it[edit]

  • Enable mail function in PHP?
  • Check safe_mode config variables?
  • Edit: It's just something with logging. 212.186.80.57 15:41, 15 August 2006 (EDT)
