Wrong URL when triggering via web server

Postby dereks » Sep 07, 2011 12:08 am

During my initial setup and testing of this plugin, I tried to manually retrieve emails using the links provided on the Manage Configuration Options page. I wanted to make sure my email delivery was working before setting up a cron job.

Also, note that I have it set to Signup new users automatically: YES.

Everything worked as expected, except that the "Welcome" email I got (for my new, automatic account registration) had a bad URL. Here is the email I got:

Code: Select all
Thank you for registering. You have an account with username
"REDACTED@domain.com". In order to complete your registration, visit the
following URL (make sure it is entered as the single line) and set your own
access password:


If you did not request any registration, ignore this message and nothing will

Do not reply to this message

Note the URL is not correct, as it links to the ./plugins/EmailReporting/scripts/ directory. Clicking on the link results in a HTTP 404 Not Found (as expected).

My Mantis Admin account also got a notification of a new user, along with the incorrect URL:

Code: Select all
The following account has been created:

Username: REDACTED@domain.com
E-mail: REDACTED@domain.com
Remote IP address:

Do not reply to this message

In normal use, this is not a serious problem, because the URL is correct when I use cron and the /usr/bin/php command. But as a new user of this plugin trying to get it working the first time, it was confusing for the confirmation link to be a broken URL.

Their is a fix in the EmailReporting plugin for this url problem. The thing is, is that that fix is currently only applied while the cron job is running.

I adjusted the plugin (0.9.0-DEV) and now it will apply the url fix whenever necessary
