I have two versions of wordpress installed on a server.
"Public" blog is wordpress 2.0
"Private" blog has been upgraded to 2.3.2 (with some difficulty -- actually had to import everything to a database on another server, wipe everything on this one, reimport... was a mess).
The public blog sends out notification e-mails as it should (upon sign up, etc).
On the private blog, however, I get the following message:
L’e-mail ne peut être envoyé.
Raison possible : votre hébergeur peut avoir désactivé la fonction mail()...
(basically: can't send e-mail, your host might have deactivated mail())
I know mail() is not deactivated as the other blog is working properly.
So, I'm wondering if:
- something I did during the upgrade screw-up might have caused this problem
- the mail() setup on the server is weird, and something has to be done somewhere to "authorize" a wp install to use it (and I lost that "setting" by upgrading)
- some other error could be causing this error to appear.
