No imap


Recommended Posts

A green novice in Unform. Installed the latest Unformserver. Doesn't seem to have php_imap functionality so downloaded and replaced php with the windows 5.3.2 binary. Now I click on Server Status, I get a warning about the compiled version not matching php version.


... and imap still doesn't work even tho I see the php_imap.dll in the etc directory.

You probably downloaded the VC9 binaries!


Correct one to use is:




All the best

Thanks Ric,

I had downloaded the php-5.3.2-nts-Win32-VC6-x86.zip so I decided to try again. I blew Uniformserver away and re-installed since its soooo easy :) .


Noticed that the php_imap.dll is missing from the usr\local\php\extensions directory so I added it from the the php 5.3.2 distribution. Then uncommented the php_imap.dll extension inthe production php.ini file.


Here are the errors I'm getting:

PHP Notice: Undefined variable: newmbox in C:\\Data\\UniServer\\www\\estmnts_new.php on line 4

PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function imap_open() in C:\\Data\\UniServer\\www\\estmnts_new.php on line 170


Works fine on a linux server.


I am running Windows Server 2003 but I doubt this makes a difference.

Thanks for the suggestions

Figured I'd update the ticket so others do not step in this hole.


There is php_imap.dll in the default install so you need to get it from php. Next uncomment the php_imap.dll in the php.ini and also (what got me) you need to check the extensions path to ensure its seeing teh ext dirtectory. Still don't have the emails being sent but imap seems to be working.
