[resolved] Moved OST to Windows; admin email fails, yielding fatal error
Yesterday, I moved my OST 1.9.14 from Debian to Windows Server. I thought it would be easy, but I'm having a problem with getting the admin email to send. Since that fails, I get a fatal error, and nothing works (this is in bootstrap.php).
From what I've read, I have to use PHPMailer, but I don't know how. I have the zip file for that library, but there's no way I know of to get OST to use it. What really confuses me is why no one else runs into this; there must be thousands of OST instances running quite happily on Windows servers. Something internal must be configured differently, since I started on Debian and simply restored the entire database on the Windows Server machine. Is fixing this a simple change to the database somewhere, or do I need to use PHPMailer and running OST on Windows is far less common than I thought? Thanks!
