Hello. I have been scanning forum posts about this back til 2007 and have still not been able to figure it out so please forgive if this question has already been asked and I am being stupid.
I am using phplists on a shared webhost where I cant access /var/logs/access.log and error.log, So far its been all good but I recently had to switch to an external SMTP and im getting a SMTP connect() failed. The same config with the same smtp works on my localhost and on another webserver I have access to and my host swear they are not blockign any ports etc. So I am trying to debug to get a better idea of whats going on.
I have so far tried the various options related to define(‘PHPMAILER_SMTP_DEBUG’, ); but I can’t figure out where the errors are supposed to appear. I get no text on the screen. No email and nothing in the event logs.
Am I just being very dumb or is there a problem? Thank you very much for your help!
