mail() problem
zentao -
Is there any chance that your "my master's degree coder " is in today. I am out of ideas. No matter what I try I cannot send a simple email.

No. His wife is trying to have a baby. But I can call him. Chances are he has his laptop with him. What script and, if applicable, what mod?

That's Ok, If his wife is having a baby, I think that is a way more important.

Maybe if you could find that script he uses to send email via PHP and get that to me then I could figure out how he worked around these problems and emulate it.

I was hoping that DH support would scour the forums at intermittent times and answer some of these problems. I realize that DH wants a secure ship but sometimes you can take that too far where it is rendered useless.

Oh well, enough venting.

I just called him. He says 1) check your permissions. That is the biggest #1 Oops. 2) All 777 MUST be 755 on DH. Must. Won't work otherwise. 3) He says he needs to know the script. He might know the source builders. 4) What exact error are you getting?

now for my inept contribution. Went over to the devnet forum. on search I came up with this: Check this out. Maybe it will help: http://www.devnetwork.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=511

Hi irish -

Various DH people drop into the forums from time to time, but it actually is fairly intermittent, and we don't have a policy of it (basically it's mostly Will and I, when we get a moment).

The discussion forums are aimed more toward those problems that aren't really something our Support Team can handle. Stuff like installation gotchas for an arbitrary script of some kind, or recommendations for web design ideas, etc. Stuff like that, that other DreamHost customers might have a chance to comment on.

If it's something related to our implementation of something - such as PHP - you can feel free to post a message here, but you should also send one to the Support Team. They can usually give you the Official Word™ on any peculiarities you might find.

That said, sometimes someone like Wil will come along and make us look bad by answering your question first. I'm starting to think that we really should consider paying him for his time. :>

Do we have any more t-shirts or sweatshirts (not the ugly orange Dreamservers t-shirts :>)? I think he should definitely get some sort of clothing article (and of course more DreamHost pens than he can ever use)...

I'll buy him a pint or two next time I'm on that side of the pond too :>

Thanks for the kind words, guys! It's a pleasure to work with such a great team! It really is...

My Geography is awful, but I'll be visiting Vancouver in November ~ish.. how far are you guys away from Vancouver? That beer could well be on! :-)

Hi Wil -

Los Angeles is a long, long ways from Vancouver. As in 1,500 miles or so.

Have fun, though. I grew up in Washington State - right across the border from Vancouver - and love it there. People are exceedingly friendly, even when they're making fun of my "American" accent. :>
