➤ HOW TO FIX ERRORS YOU MIGHT GET
▸”Mail doesn’t send”
This is very likely caused by you not having a mail server running that makes it possible to send emails using the build-in PHP mail() function. Fix this issue by setting up a mail server. I have provided links for this here in the video description. If you have a mail server running then check your code for errors.
You made a typo in your code. Probably by forgetting to close something. Did you already check for any mistakes in your code? Well check again because it’s there somewhere 🙂
▸”HTTP ERROR 500″
HTTP ERROR 500 is a server error, meaning that you are most likely using an outdated version of apache or mysql. Try updating your servers and make sure that you are using the latest version of PHP.
