PEAR mail package is not installed

2 (talkcontribs)

Trying to use SMTP to send emails. I have installed pear and put the settings in LocalSettings.php but I still get the Pear mail package not installed - I must be missing something.


MediaWiki 	1.19.1
PHP 	5.2.6 (apache2handler)
MySQL 	5.0.67


$wgSMTP = array(
 'host'     => "mail.server.location", // could also be an IP address. Where the SMTP server is located
 'IDHost'   => "",      // Generally this will be the domain name of your website (aka
 'port'     => 25,                 // Port to use when connecting to the SMTP server
 'auth'     => true,               // Should we use SMTP authentication (true or false)
 'username' => "username",     // Username to use for SMTP authentication (if being used)
 'password' => "passwd"       // Password to use for SMTP authentication (if being used)

Output of pear list

I have restarted apache to no avail. I have not yet rebooted the whole server.

Any help appreciated.

Follow this checklist. Specially, be sure that PHP include_path setting contains the PEAR installation directory
