Support » Fixing WordPress » Activate user w/o mail server (no onboard smtp)

  • Hi all,

    I am wanting to hack WP under WAMP** (win32 lamp), and there is no smtp server. I have it running, but I am not going to get the code in the activation email.

    How do I activate it within WP ??
    Thanks in advance, John

    PS, could you please send me an email if you know how, and it is not too much trouble

    ** (why I am using wamp instead of LAMP)** I am stuck in a catch-22 with my compac laptop, I can’t load linux until I get the CDROM fixed, and I can’t send the laptop in until finish my paper on empathy:

  • Possible solution:

    Plugin: wpPHPMailer

    A way to bypass the bug is this.
    Replace line 390 in index-install.php before install or on a reinstall.

    It will input YourPassword as the password.

    $user_id = wpmu_create_user( ‘admin’, $pass, $email);

    Change to:

    $user_id = wpmu_create_user( ‘admin’, YOURPASSWORD, $email);

    Change the code back after install for secuirty.
