Email Reminders

Email Reminders is a combination of scripts - a set of PHP scripts for data input and display, and a perl cron script - that will send an email to your specified email address at a certain date and time. It uses MySQL as the default database and archives the email, datetime,subject, and body of the email.

            Thanks for your timely response. It is good to know the status of lists.php.

            You're quite right. I will fix this bug in the next release.

            Items 2-4 involve the file "list.php". This file is included in the release as-is and is only there as a guide to help people create an admin if they choose to do so. That being said, it is out-dated (doesn't use the PEAR::DB, etc) and should be updated so it might be useful, which includes using the configuration settings in config.php.

            emrem-0.6.1 feedback
            I am new to emrem and let me say thank you for writing this. Here is what I have found so far. Please take these as you would like as I dont profess to know what I am talking about ;p

            1) Creating a record in the past gives a browser warning saying you cant do that which indicates to the user that the record was not added but it is actually created in the database.

            2) Seems some values could be moved into config.php ... like some database name in lists.php.

            3) Lists.php is not mentioned in the manual or from anydocumentation. So I am not sure if it is intended for use.

            4) Lists.php is dieing when trying to encounter the first mysql_select_db statement. Perhaps this is because my installation requires a user and pass even from localhost. I have no idea. I am happy just to delete items from the db for my useage.

            I hope this helps.

   won't run
            Hi there,

            trying to get this to work for a while now and not sure what the problem is.
            I enter a cron job via Webmin and then run it but get this:

            Output dal comando /home/www/ ..

            /bin/sh: /home/www/ No such file or directory

            What could the problem be - permissions? Any suggestions very welcome
