2015-01-05 16:51:42 -0500 asked a question Is there a table unapproved user are stored?

I'm working on setting up email, and have some users stuck in the waiting for email confirmation. Is there a table where I can delete that record?

Thank you! it was running under TCP, and with that change it starts and has no cache warnings / errors.

  • System = redhat
  • yum install memcached
  • pip install python-memcached

I added this to the bottom of my setting.py

CACHES = {
  'default': {
    'BACKEND': 'django.core.cache.backends.memcached.MemcachedCache',
    'LOCATION': '/export/harris112/memcached.sock',
    'TIMEOUT': 18000,
    'KEY_PREFIX': 'askbot',
  }
}
CACHE_TIMEOUT = 18000
CACHE_MIDDLEWARE_ANONYMOUS_ONLY = True

and I attempt to run locally for testing

(python-two-seven)[root@kitt uvcdatASKBOT]# /etc/init.d/memcached start
Starting memcached: 
(python-two-seven)[root@kitt uvcdatASKBOT]# python manage.py runserver `hostname -i`:8000

Please attend to the following:

Cache server is unavailable.
Check your CACHE... settings and make sure that the cache backend is working properly.

If necessary, type ^C (Ctrl-C) to stop the program
(to disable the self-test add ASKBOT_SELF_TEST = False).

turns out I've missed something… Any suggestions?

2013-11-05 15:02:36 -0500 asked a question configuring email?

I configured my settings.py

ADMINS = (
  ('Matthew Harris', 'harris112@aims.info'),
)
... db stuff ...
outgoing mail server settings
SERVER_EMAIL = 'harris112@aims.info'
DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = 'harris112@aims.info'
EMAIL_HOST_USER = ''
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = ''
EMAIL_SUBJECT_PREFIX = ''
EMAIL_HOST='nospam.aims.info'
EMAIL_PORT=''
EMAIL_USE_TLS=False
EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend'

and from that directory I can send an email to myself (admin email) with

from django.core.mail import mail_admins
mail_admins('subject line', 'message text')

but user are still not receiving emails (example creating an account verification email)

The server also sends mail find

mail -v 'harris112@aims.info'

Am I missing something? Any thoughts, ideas, comments, or concerns?

2013-11-05 14:48:52 -0500 commented answer Askbot not sending email

I got my configuration in settings.py set up that our code from django.core.mail import mail_admins mail_admins('subject line', 'message text') will send me (admin) an email. I restarted apache, but the site still does not send emails and there is nothing in my `log/askbot.log` file? Any other suggestions or ideas?

Is it possible to add github account on the login page. I'd like my users to be able to login and create an account on my askbot with their github account.
