Re: [PHP] php mail function not work from apache,but work well from command line




The issue is that when you do this through the CLI you are running
as a normal user. When you call this script/page via a browser it's
running as the httpd server. On my centos-6.7, php-5.3.3 (you should
really upgrade) system the latter approach is being blocked by
selinux.

Did you run the:

  sestatus -b | grep sendmail

command as suggested earlier? When I do I get:

  httpd_can_sendmail off

on my centos system, with selinux "enforcing". When I disable
selinux, sending via the browser call to the script works.

I.e., there are no bugs here -- just a system configuration issue.

If you aren't seeing anything on these (both success and failure) in
your maillog I suspect that you aren't looking at the correct log.
You need to make certain that you are looking at, and taking actions
on, the correct environment.

the list and get the messages just fine that way.]
