Support » Plugin: Postie » No result when checking manually

  • Resolved David M.


    I’ve started trying Postie and nothing at all happens.

    The Test Config screen is alright, it connects to the mailserver and shows the correct number of messages at the bottom.

    But when I manually run the mail check script, nothing happens after the “Checking for mail manually” message shows up. Nothing gets posted. Emails are not deleted. No debug file has appeared in wp-content yet (yes, I changed wp-config.php as recommended).

    All this happens both with POP3 and IMAP. I’m on multisite.

    What can I do? Thanks!

    UPDATE: I created a debug.log file and chmod 666 it. Then I run the script with debug. Nothing got written to that file.

    (The php-error.log file has nothing related to Postie)

    How about if you click Run Postie Debug?

    I thought it was implied that I was doing exactly that.

    After some time, I found out that Postie eventually works and posts stuff… but not when running the script manually, and the debug option has given me no debug that I could find. The manual run is expected to create posts, isn’t it?

    Yes the manual run is no different than a cron based run.

    Are you getting any info in your debug logs? How about the error log?

    There have been reports of the debug output not working, but since Test Config is working it seems like a different issue.
