getting php mail() to work with apache2/php5/debian
I put together some php stuff on my test server with debian/php5/apache2. In our php.ini file, sendmail_path is set equal to the IP address of our SMTP server, and everything works great.
When I tried to put together a production server to actually serve the page, again using debian/php5/apache2, I couldn't get it to work. When I run a little test script it says:
sh: (ip of the SMTP server): command not found
As though it's trying to run the IP address of the server as a command. I've tried everything I can think of, even copying over the config files from the test server, but nothing seems to answer. Is there something I need to have configured to have the server IP work there, or is my test server just magical?
