Mass Mailing Problem | Forum

Nicholas Anderson

I don't know why but when I send out a mass mailing email, it never sends. It tells me it was sent but when I ask my users they say they never got an email. I don't even get the email.

use you the internal PHP-Mailer, probably the Webspace-Provider have restrictions for that.

or use you the SMTP mailsend ?

single mails going out ?

Did you setup a cronjob for oxwall?

I setup a new cronjob because  mass mailing has stopped working, but not work (oxwall version 1.2.4). In my old version 1.1.1 mass mailing works fine. 
Thank you

/usr/local/bin/php  -f /home/xxxx/yyyy/ow_cron/run.php
the parameter "-f" is a execution parameter for the PHP-Parser

Thank you Facetester but parameter "-f" not work.
I have a drupal istallation in the same server, but in other folder. Maybe drupal interfere on cron job?

The best way to check that cronjob works well is it run it'c command via SSH. Would you do it?

Thank you Addenster. How can I do this?

SSH = terminal login to the webspace with PUTTY SSH-Programm
(look in Webspace manual if you can do this)

second try is that you -add a path- in the .htaccess file for the Rewrite function.
it is possible that your cron-builder work on HTTP-Request and not in system-level,
and the rewrite-function broken this request.
After -add- the line the rewrite engine don't break the http-request.

hope that was helpful
