  • Mediawiki email - not working

    I have installed, using your support tools, the MediWiki and have transferred our pages from an older, less-functional wiki. The MediaWiki is working fine, thank you very much, except for one thing.

    I am trying to enable outgoing email. This is primarily used to very email addresses during registration for the Wiki. I followed the instructions on the MediWiki hel pages at and set the variable to the settings to send out through

    But I get the following errors when I attempt to use the feature:

    Warning: UserMailer::require_once(Mail.php) [function.UserMailer-require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/domains/ on line 114

    Fatal error: UserMailer::require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'Mail.php' (include_path='/var/www/domains/') in /var/www/domains/ on line 114

    One thing that I noticed was that the MediaWiki says it requires PEAR mail

    Warning: This setting requires PEAR's Mail package to be installed (run "pear install MAIL" and "pear install Net_SMTP").

    Do you know if I can get PEAR Mail installed or if I can get MediaWiki to enable email?

      Have you tried setting it to false and using the built in php mail() function instead?

          After reading this I used kazey's solution b/c I was having a similar issue. Setting it to false and using php mail really did the trick!
