Hi have just installed Mediawiki running on FC5 box, I do not understand how to get email notification/authentication to work. PEAR is installed. I created on account and entered one of my POP3 email addresses on the wiki, afterwards opened up phpMyAdmin to make sure the new account was there. Then to test email auth/notif, I logged out, typed in username I just created, and clicked the 'email password' button: nothing happened In LocalSettings.php I have:
$wgEmergencyContact = "firstname.lastname@example.org";
$wgPasswordSender = "email@example.com";
If PEAR is installed, isn't this all I need-or am I missing something?
I see in DefaultSettings.php I can set as an SMTP server:
* SMTP Mode
* For using a direct (authenticated) SMTP server connection.
* Default to false or fill an array :
* "host" => 'SMTP domain',
* "IDHost" => 'domain for MessageID',
* "port" => "25",
* "auth" => true/false,
* "username" => user,
* "password" => password
* @global mixed $wgSMTP
$wgSMTP = false;
Is this what I need to do copy and paste into my LocalSettings.php to get email to work? If so, since I'm no Exchange Server wiz, does "host" mean my company's domain, or IP of the actual Exchange Server, or what? What is my IDHost? Do I use my own username and password here, or do I set up a new account in Active Directory?
