Sign Up Form With Email Verification On localhost Not Working

Posted 04 November 2017 - 01:48 PM

I've been trying to create a simple sign up form with email verification for my site but was unable to do so and then I found this project: https://github.com/d...e/loginregister where it seems to work great a part from the the fact that when it says that I successfully registered, it doesn't send me the email... I was reading for quite a bit about PHPMailer and was trying to change the settings many times but still nothing. Does anyone know what I'm missing here? What do I have to edit to be able to send email from localhost to gmail? Thanks in advance.

You need still need a mail server to send emails regardless of local host or not..
