[SOLVED] Amazon SES plugin, newbee problem


#1

Hello, I’m unskilled and new to phplist, with limited budget im trying to hosting it on my paid shared hosting server. I’m using it in combination with Amazon ses plugin, and i read thought documentation, i got out of sandbox mode in Ireland server and changed settings for SES endpoint to apigateway.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com (made sure it’s not pointing to STMP server), entered access key ID, and secret key too.
Now when I to send simple test campaign to my own email address I can not, I contacted server admin and first he said he whitelisted my acc and later asked ‘if I can whitelist it on their side?’. I’m not aware of such a option on amazon side, since i have right keys I guess that is a form of sufficient identification.

Now I get this error in case when I send one simple campaign to my own email adress;
event log:
408 12 October 2018 03:49:22 MailSender http code: 0, result: , curl error: Failed to connect to apigateway.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com port 80: Connection timed out

I installed phplist with help of cpanel > softaculous. phplist version

PHP Version 5.6.38

@MSSS You don’t appear to have the right endpoint, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/regions.html#region-endpoints

Oh such a rookie mistake; OK i corrected it (email.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com) but again I get error:
12 October 2018 21:46:35
MailSender http code: 0, result: , curl error: Failed to connect to email.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com port 80: Connection refused

Any ideas why?
Thanks duncanc

You probably need to be using https, not http, in the endpoint.

Your the man! :slight_smile:
I just added https:// to the end, there was not even http before, just got my first test campaign.
Really happy, thanks again.
