hello steve, httpd belongs to user:www and group:www; is it ok if i change only the group to smmsp? does it effect the webserver in any way? the webserver and email server is working fine now. i am worried if the change might have any bad effect. thanks, Naveen.

The mail() function returns true without any error. but the problem is the email is never delivered. I viewed the log file for mail(/var/log/maillog) and i saw the following error: > > Server sendmail:NOQUEUE:SYSERR(www):can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied. > > I would be really thankful if someone could tell me where i am doing wrong. > In php.ini, i have set sendmail_path = "/usr/sbin/sendmail". > > thanks in advance. > Naveen. > > > Change the group that http is running under to smmsp via the httpd.conf and it should run. I don't know if this the "best" approach to this problem, but it will allow the httpd to access the clientmqueue folder. Be warned, if you're using mailman for mailing lists, it will have to be recompiled with the proper gid or it will fail out. -- Micheal Patterson TSG Network Administration 405-917-0600 Confidentiality Notice: This e-mail message, including any attachments, is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information.
