  • Resolved Franz92


    Thank you for the plugin. I am getting the following error message:

    2020-11-10 08:27:54 Connection: opening to, timeout=300, options=array()
    2020-11-10 08:28:02 Connection failed. Error #2: stream_socket_client(): unable to connect to (Connection refused) [/home/brauerei/public_html/wp-includes/PHPMailer/SMTP.php line 349]
    2020-11-10 08:28:02 SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection refused (111)
    SMTP connect() failed.

    This is the server info:

    OS: Linux 3.10.0-1127.19.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Aug 25 17:23:54 UTC 2020 x86_64
    PHP version: 7.2.34

    WordPress multisite: No
    openssl: Available
    allow_url_fopen: Enabled

    Have you encountered this already? What could the problem be?

    Thank you for your help!
