Whenever I try to sign up for an account I get an error. The error is below. You can also test it out yourself at babyiqtest.com

Language string failed to load: instantiate Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /var/www/wifidog-auth/wifidog/classes/Mail.php:411) in /var/www/wifidog-auth/wifidog/classes/MainUI.php on line 647

Ok, there was a problem with the way PHPMailer was included. This has now been fixed, so you should now get the actual error message generated by PHPMailer (possibly translated in your language):

  • PHPMailer couldn't sent mail. Error was: Could not instantiate mail function

Problem is, the message is wrong (nothing we can do about it, it's in PHPMailer). What it is supposed to say is that the call to PHP's mail() function failed, most likely because there is no mail transfer agent (MTA, such as sendmail or postfix) installed on your system. You can either:

  • Install one, and make sure it works.
  • Change wifidog/config.php to use a SMTP server instead of mail()
