I'm moving one of my sites to a new host. I'm still using EE 1.6.9 and using it with Freeform 2.6.6. I know, I know... I'm way out of date. But, things have worked and I've never seen a need up upgrade my software and pay for latest and greatest.
So... I'm hoping someone can give me some things to try because I'm all out of ideas.
I'm operating the site under a test URL for the time being just to ensure everything works. I've changed all paths (that I know of), changed config.php file, updated permissions on the necessary files/folders on the server, etc. The ONLY thing I can't seem to get working is getting Freeform to send email. On my current live host, I've used this version of EE and Freeform together for probably four years with zero issues sending mail.
On my new host, the only difference that I can tell is that I'm now using PHP 5.2, where on my old (current) host they're still using PHP 5.1.6. I don't think this would make a huge difference, but maybe? I'm not sure I can downgrade to 5.1.6, so if that is in fact an issue, is there an updated Freeform that I could install that will still work with my version of EE and PHP 5.2?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I wanted to add that on my old (current) host, email configuration was setup to use phpmail. On the new host, they use sendmail for email. So, I have went in and changed the email configuration in Admin to "sendmail."
I'm also able to email myself via the "communicate" tab in the control panel, so I know email is working.
