I want to use Gmail to send email from our site.
Settings are straightforward:
SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
Mail ID: email@example.com
Password: <correct password>
But in the debug mode, I see this error when a contact form is submitted on our website:
SMTP -> ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Unable to find the socket transport “ssl” – did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP? (5)
How can I debug this? Maybe my firewall settings — I use CSF/LFD on my WHM/Cpanel server. Quite a common setup?
Much appreciate any help!
