General Help & How-To / Server Migration
« Last post by mike_mac on November 23, 2016, 11:17:18 am »

My server has recently migrated and this has thrown up several issues;

Message content not loading - to which i found the PHP htmlspecialchars function fix and it seems to have worked
New messages not saving
New links not saving
New follow ups not saved
New hits not registering

So it seems Listmail can not now add new records to the DB, although I can edit existing messages links etc.

Thanks Dean, it is now working. Problem 2.

I only have 115 subscribers right now. When I send a mail it stops at 50 and says to check configuration. The settings are at the default 1000. I changed to 500 and it still pauses and I have to hit resume 2 times to send them all.  What do I look for to fix this? It was working OK until a couple weeks ago. Did they restrict something on the server at my Host?

Hi Jon,

It looks like you have entered the timing part (0 0 * * *, which means daily at midnight) in the area where just the command should go. You may have to separate the timing from the command (/usr/bin/wget ...) and enter the timing manually using other inputs depending on your web hosting control panel.

Took off the end like you suggested Dean and it ran. Now I get a email with this -   /bin/sh: 0: command not found.

this is the code I have in there. 0 0 * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /dev/null -T 0

Hi Michael,

The screen being blank is likely because of PHP output buffering. LMP should be improved to use an AJAX background sending process and queue checking script instead of a "live" page that continually runs in the browser. You can try customizing your PHP configuration to get the live experience back. In the PHP.INI you would disable compression, e.g. zlib, and set output_buffering to Off. If your system uses a proxy like Nginx or other it becomes more difficult as buffering would likely need to be disabled there, too. If none of that works an option may be to modify domail.php to output a string of spaces along with the counter update javascript to defeat any remaining buffer, e.g. after this line at 1768 (v1.88):

Code: [Select]
echo "<script language=javascript>document.s.speed2.value='$hr'</script>\n";
You could additionally output 4096 bytes of space:

Code: [Select]
echo str_repeat(' ',4096);
As for the error, if you have AUTH enabled you may be caught by a reconnection bug where the AUTH LOGIN capability is not detected properly due to the server returning AUTH PLAIN LOGIN. In admin.php on line 1522 change this:

Code: [Select]
          if($mtauth && strpos($srvmsg,'AUTH LOGIN')>0){

to this:

Code: [Select]
          if($mtauth && strpos($srvmsg,'LOGIN')>0){

Hi Jon,

The part at the end, "1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null", redirects all output to null, so you could remove that and enable the email feature if your host has it. It may be automatic. Any output when the cron task runs should be emailed to you. You might see things such as "File not found" (no wget available), "Access denied" (bad password), etc.

If you want to run the task more frequently to test it you'll want to make sure you have no followups on lists with real users to avoid sending them email, then you could change the timing to * * * * * to run every minute, or */5 * * * * to run every 5 minutes, temporarily. You'd need to disable the 24-hr restriction on the Dailymail page in LMP as well.

There are other ways to test wget and cron such as with custom scripts that is more involved. For such hands-on support please visit

Can!t seem to find an edit post feature. I wanted to add that I can run the dailymail Manually and it sends out the report just fine.

Ok I am pulling my hair out here. The daily mail will NOT run. Contacted my host and the say wget is ok. I have looked at solutions using fetch and so forth and it will just not run. Can someone look at this code and see what I may have messed up? My host won't offer any advice on the coding. Here is what I have minus the password obviously.

0 0 * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /dev/null -T 0 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

I have set the chromod to 755 on everything. All runs well sending mails. I can do the dailymail and it runs fine and sends the email to me. Just wont run automatically. What is this thick brain not getting?

Project completed.

I discovered  We're using their Mailing List feature, so the email list is stored there and when our alert software sends an email to one primary email address, it gets automatically redistributed to the whole list.   It's perfect for us.  :)
