Flatline-check.php script no send email
« on: March 07, 2021, 11:35:01 AM »
Hi I am trying to get the flatline-check.php script to work.
If the realtime.txt file is not updated after 1 minute, it shows me a message. But it doesn't send email. My website is hosted by ionos. I don't think I have sendmail service. He set up PHPMailer and it works.
But I don't know how to tell the script to send it through PHPMailer instead of Sendmail.

// Include this in a page where you want the message to show up if the data is flatlined
// If flatlined an EMail can be sent

Hi,

The 2 lines you need to edit are as follows.....

$to = '***************@dw7240.com';               // EMail info
$from      = 'dw7240.com';

your email address goes in the $to line,
$from is where the email originates from, ie where the script lives.

Hope this helps, this is all I have in my setup and it works flawlessly.....

One more thing you may have to setup up email forwarding so that email from sendmail server goes to the new server (PHPMailer)

Cheers,

Nick. dw7240.com
