 [2000-08-22 09:41 UTC] cyberchand at ifrance dot com
I don't manage to send a mail : here is my code :

<?
mail("cyberchand@ifrance.com", "Object", "Text") ;
?>

When I run this script the page tells me :

Warning: Failed to Connect in c:\easyphp\www\essai.php on line 2

I work on Apache and localhost, here is my php.ini :


[PHP_3]

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About this file ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior.  In order for PHP to
; read it, it must be named 'php3.ini'.  PHP looks for it in the current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory.  The
; path in which the php3.ini file is looked for can be overriden using
; the -c argument in command line mode.
;
; The syntax of the file is extremely simple.  Whitespace and Lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future (they probably won't).
;
; Options are specified using the syntax key = value or key = "complex value".
; Key names are *case sensitive*.  foo = bar is different from FOO = bar.
; 'value' can be any number, word or keyword (keywords are On, Off, True,
; False, Yes and No, and are case insensitive).
; 'complex value' can be just about anything, expcept for " and a newline
; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
;
; All the values in the php3.ini-dist file correspond to the builtin
; defaults (that is, if no php3.ini is used, or if you delete these lines,
; the builtin defaults will be identical).

I've other problems of this tpe : when I write a form in HTML with METHOD="post" ACTION="page.php" the page doesn't manage to read the variables called in the form HTML. If I have <INPUT TYPE="text" VALUE="name"> the script in page.php is :

<?
echo "$name" ;
?>

When I clic on the button of the form I have a blank page...
Could you help me?

and you are sure you have a SMTP server
running on 'localhost' as configured in
the ini file ?
 [2000-08-22 12:00 UTC] cyberchand at ifrance dot com
What have I to put in SMTP? My "mail.ifrance.com" ? I tryed that and it didn't work. However it is a working smtp server in Outlook Express, I use this SMTP in order to send messages from my adress cyberchand@ifrance.com
I found the solution to my second problem, here is the code :

<?
$name = $HTTP_POST_VARS["name"];
echo "$name";
?> 
 [2000-08-22 12:32 UTC] hholzgra@php.net
i just tried "mail.ifrance.com" and it worked
for me, it is definetly what you have to put
in your ini file instead of "localhost" if you
do not run a mailserver for yourself on your
machine

regarding your second problem: you should 
never put multiple problems in one bugreport!
see "register_globals" in your ini file and
the manual to see what happens
 [2000-08-22 13:21 UTC] hholzgra@php.net
please leave this report closed
there's nothing wrong with php or the mail
function here, it is a local configuration
problem ... (you might ask one of the mailing
lists for further help)
