Chpt 4 Register.Php (Error When Trying To Connect To Mailserver)

Recommended Posts

I get the following error when trying to register on the website. Mercury in running in my xampp. In my register.php file on line 59, I have:

mail ($_POST['email'], 'Registration Confirmation', $body, 'From: me@example.com');

 

In my php.ini file, I have the mailserver set to me@example.com

 

The following is the message I get when registering:

Thanks!

 

Thank you for registering! You may now log in and access the site's content.

An error occurred in script 'C:\xampp\htdocs\register.php' on line 59:

I still get an error & am confused. Please clarify:

 

Error:

An error occurred in script 'C:\xampp\htdocs\register.php' on line 59:

mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "lkkerns@mchsi.com" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set()

 

I set my php.ini file to my email address:

 

[mail function]

; For Win32 only.

; http://php.net/smtp

SMTP = lkkerns@mchsi.com

; http://php.net/smtp-port

smtp_port = 25

 

; For Win32 only.

; http://php.net/sendmail-from

;sendmail_from = postmaster@localhost

 

 

My email variable in my config.inc.php file is:

$contact_email='lkkerns@mchsi.com';

 

In my register.php file (line 59) is:

mail ($_POST['email'], 'Registration Confirmation', $body, 'From: lkkerns@mchsi.com');

Your email address is not an SMTP server. You should also post what OS you're using, and what you're hoping to use for your SMTP server.

I have windows 7. I am confused because last semester in my PHP class, I didn't have a problem. I had my php.ini file set to me@example.com. So if I only need it for class and testing on localhost, what do I need to change? So if I only test on my localhost, what do I put for SMTP server and why didn't I have a problem last semester when testing my files?

 

Sorry I am not understanding. So if I have a gmail account, this doesn't work either.

 

[mail function]

; For Win32 only.

; http://php.net/smtp

SMTP = lynaekern@gmail.com

; http://php.net/smtp-port

; For Win32 only.

; http://php.net/sendmail-from

;sendmail_from = postmaster@localhost

Its not your email that sends the email. You need to find out what the smtp address is for your internet service provider (isp). That link I gave you even shows you what a smtp is and how it is different to an email address.

Okay, I called my isp and got the address below. This took care of the previous error. Is this the only thing I need to change with the setting below? So the e-mail address in my config.inc.php and register.php files don't really matter? I have two more issues described below.

Your first error is a file not found error. The error appears to be in index.php, and indicates that the link to your forgot password script is incorrect.

 

Your second error, "Undefined variable: dbc" <-- this is your database connection variable, but your login.inc.php does not have your login code. You need to include your config.inc.php file before you use mysqli_real_escape_string() because it needs the database connection resource ($dbc).

Hi Edward,

 

I appreciate your patients! Okay. This class is going to send me over the edge!

 

I get this error when logging in with my password:

 

Problem #1. Fatal error: Cannot redeclare my_error_handler() (previously declared in C:\xampp\htdocs\includes\config.inc.php:18) in C:\xampp\htdocs\includes\config.inc.php on line 38

 

This is my config.inc.php file:

 

//Define variables:

$live=false;

$contact_email='postmaster@localhost.com';

 

//Define constants:

 

define ('BASE_URI', 'http://localhost/');

define ('BASE_URL','/www/');

define ('MYSQL','/includes/mysql.inc.php');

 

//start session:

session_start();

 

 

//Define error handling (max of 5 arguments):

function my_error_handler($e_number,$e_message,$e_file,$e_line,$e_vars){

global $live,$contact_email;

//Detailed error message:

$message="An error occurred in script '$e_file' on line $e_line:\n$e_message\n";

//add backtrace (information that happended up until this point) info:

$message .= "

" .print_r(debug_backtrace(),1) . "

\n";

 

//If site isn't live, show error message in browser:

if(!$live){

echo'

'.nl2br($message).'

';

 

//If site is live, send error to an email (1 means email),(0 means operating system's log):

}else{

error_log($message,1,$contact_email, 'From:postmaster@localhost.com');

//If site is live, show generic message if error not a notice:

if($e_number!=E_NOTICE){

echo '

A system error occurred. We apologize for the inconvenience.

';

}

}//End $live IF-ELSE

return true;

}//End my_error_handler()definition

 

//Apply error handler (tells PHP to use the custom function for handling errors instead of its default):

set_error_handler('my_error_handler'); (Should this be in here since the error says the set_error_handler shouldn't be redeclared?)

//Redirect invalid users (checks for user_id, redirect to index.php page):

function redirect_invalid_user($check = 'user_id', $destination = 'index.php', $protocol = 'http://'){

if (!isset($_SESSION[$check])){

$url = $protocol . BASE_URL . $destination;

//header () function redirects:

header ("Location: $url");

// exit () terminates the script. If you don't terminate the script, the header() function will continue to execute the script.

exit();

}

}

 

 

 

Problem #2. When logging in and clicking forgot password, I still get object not found error.

 

This is index.php file:

 

require('./includes/config.inc.php');

 

//include the login file:

if($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST'){

include ('./includes/login.inc.php'); (this is the correct path)

}

 

include ('./includes/header.html');

 

//database connection:

require (MYSQL);

?>

 

Welcome

 

 

Welcome to Knowledge is Power, a site dedicated to keeping you up to date on the Web security and programming information you need to know.

 

 

include ('./includes/footer.html');

?>

 

This is my login.inc.php file:

 

require('./includes/config.inc.php');

 

//database connection:

require (MYSQL);

 

 

//empty errors for storing errors:

$login_errors = array();

 

//Validate email address:

if (filter_var($_POST['email'], FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)){

$e = mysqli_real_escape_string($dbc,$_POST['email']);

}else{

$login_errors['email'] = 'Please enter a valid email address!';

}

//Validate password:

if (!empty($_POST['pass'])){

$p = mysqli_real_escape_string($dbc, $_POST['pass']);

}else{

$login_errors['pass'] = 'Please enter your password!';

}

//If no errors, query database (date_expired if greater than or equal to this moment, the value is true if not it is false):

if (empty($login_errors)){

$q = "SELECT id, username, type, IF(date_expires >= NOW(), true, false) FROM users WHERE (email ='$e' AND pass ='" . get_password_hash($p) . "')";

$r = mysqli_query ($dbc, $q);

//If one row is returned by database query, get data and store in session:

if (mysqli_num_rows($r) == 1){

$row = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_NUM);

 

//If administrator, create a new session ID for safety:

if($row[2] == 'admin'){

session_regenerate_id(true);

$_SESSION['user_admin'] = true;

}

$_SESSION['user_id'] = $row[0];

$_SESSION['username'] = $row[1];

if($row[3] == 1)$_SESSION['user_not_expired'] = true;

//If no row was returned, create error message:

}else{

$login_errors['login'] = 'The email address and password do not match those on file.';

}

}//End of $login_errors IF.

Are you using this book in a class? This book does assume complete comfort with PHP and MySQL, by the way. It's not really for learning either.

 

As for your first problem, you've declared the same function twice, although I don't see it in the code you've posted.

 

As for the second problem, what is the actual and complete error?

 

Also, your BASE_URI and BASE_URL values are wrong.

BASE_URI should be a file system reference, meaning it'd start with C:\ or / or the like. BASE_URL should be a Web reference, meaning it starts with http.

Ah i know what i have done here, its a path not a url for BASE_URI, whoops

 

define ('BASE_URI', 'C:\xampp\htdocs\knowledge_is_power');

Okay one more thing, what about the BASE_URL for a localhost, just put it like:

 

define ('BASE_URL','http://localhost/knowledge_is_power/');

 

so Lynae

 

should be

 

define ('BASE_URL','http://localhost/');

 

"lol i have more problems with paths and directories than i do with programming, funny stuff this, yes it looks worrying but i do get it now. I just finished the knowledge is power site, so onto the MVC coffeeshop now with a bit more experience."

Yes, this book is for a class. I don't think this is for me but I need to get through the class.

 

How is this incorrect if my database is updating? URL is website and URI is path, correct?

//Define constants:

 

define ('BASE_URI', 'http://localhost/');

define ('BASE_URL','/www/');

define ('MYSQL','/includes/mysql.inc.php');

 

Another error (God help me!):

This is line#59 in my register.php file:

These are my settings in my php.ini file:

 

[mail function]

; For Win32 only.

; http://php.net/smtp

SMTP = mail.mediacombb.net (I called my isp and they told me that this is my SMTP.)

; http://php.net/smtp-port

smtp_port = 25

 

; For Win32 only.

; http://php.net/sendmail-from

;sendmail_from = postmaster@localhost

 

Please explain in detail what is wrong and why I am changing it.

Okay, well, you're really going to have a hard time with this book (and possibly the class) if you aren't solid with PHP and MySQL. And the reason you're getting the second error is almost certainly because you have those wrong values in your configuration file.

I don't get the error when registering anymore. The problem was I put MYSQL connection was after the header file. (errata in book corrects this)

 

Still getting the other two errors?

 

I get this error when logging in with my password:

Problem #1.

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare my_error_handler() (previously declared in C:\xampp\htdocs\includes\config.inc.php:18) in C:\xampp\htdocs\includes\config.inc.php on line 38

I listed the config.inc.php file in previous post so is this coming from the login.inc.php which is the following:

<?php

 

require('./includes/config.inc.php');

 

//database connection:

require (MYSQL);

 

 

//empty errors for storing errors:

$login_errors = array();

 

//Validate email address:

if (filter_var($_POST['email'], FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)){

$e = mysqli_real_escape_string($dbc,$_POST['email']);

}else{

$login_errors['email'] = 'Please enter a valid email address!';

}

//Validate password:

if (!empty($_POST['pass'])){

$p = mysqli_real_escape_string($dbc, $_POST['pass']);

}else{

$login_errors['pass'] = 'Please enter your password!';

}

//If no errors, query database (date_expired if greater than or equal to this moment, the value is true if not it is false):

if (empty($login_errors)){

$q = "SELECT id, username, type, IF(date_expires >= NOW(), true, false) FROM users WHERE (email ='$e' AND pass ='" . get_password_hash($p) . "')";

$r = mysqli_query ($dbc, $q);

//If one row is returned by database query, get data and store in session:

if (mysqli_num_rows($r) == 1){

$row = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_NUM);

 

//If administrator, create a new session ID for safety:

if($row[2] == 'admin'){

session_regenerate_id(true);

$_SESSION['user_admin'] = true;

}

$_SESSION['user_id'] = $row[0];

$_SESSION['username'] = $row[1];

if($row[3] == 1)$_SESSION['user_not_expired'] = true;

//If no row was returned, create error message:

}else{

$login_errors['login'] = 'The email address and password do not match those on file.';

}

}//End of $login_errors IF.

Use these setting for the BASE contants:

 

define ('BASE_URI', 'C:\xampp\htdocs');

define ('BASE_URL', 'http://localhost/');

 

After let us know what errors are still coming up. You may also get errors coming up as some of the database tables need to be populated before use.

Thanks Edward but I get this error (when accessing the index.php) if I change it to that:

arse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in C:\xampp\htdocs\includes\config.inc.php on line 9 (first line iine in define for the constants)

 

According to our instructor, it should be how I have it below. I am not having a problem registering it is just my other two errors in my previous post.

 

define ('BASE_URI', 'http://localhost/');

define ('BASE_URL','/www/');

define ('MYSQL','/includes/mysql.inc.php');

Change setting from this:

 

define ('BASE_URI', 'http://localhost/');

define ('BASE_URL','/www/');

define ('MYSQL','/includes/mysql.inc.php');

 

to

 

define ('BASE_URI', 'C:\xampp\htdocs');

define ('BASE_URL', 'http://localhost/');

define ('MYSQL', '/includes/mysql.inc.php');

I resolved this error: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare my_error_handler() (previously declared in C:\xampp\htdocs\includes\config.inc.php:18) in C:\xampp\htdocs\includes\config.inc.php on line 38

 

I figured out I was including the config.inc.php file and MYSQL in the login.inc.php file. I took these out and it fixed the error.

 

 

 

I also resolved my invalid path error: I had the path for the link to the forgot_password.php with an extra s (forgot_passsword.php).

 

Frustrating but finally got it!
