Topic: SMS Gateway

Hi,
How can i send SMS to Customer through SMS Gateway Integration in FA.

Thanking you with Best Regards,

Re: SMS Gateway

It's simple question.  And simple way I am giving answer.  You can write your sms sending program in pure php and trigger the php function using the FA program. Simply call from the sms function where you need. Before that add some validations and sms texts to send it to customers.

Re: SMS Gateway

Many SMS Gateways provide for email to sms functionality as well. Also, using SMS Modems or virtual mobile numbers, one can run their own SMS gateways in open source using kannel.org or the proprietary likes of NowSMS / Diafaan | Usage.

Run your own SMS Gateway using your Android Phone:

Re: SMS Gateway

Thank you very much. Please send me the details about how can i send emails because i tried several times to send emails from FA but failed. I also tried the PHP mailer with SMTP setup but nothing gone right. It will be a great help if you describe the detail steps to activate SMS gateway.

Best regards,

Re: SMS Gateway

I dont know about the SMS Gateway but sending emails via FA using phpmailer works very well for me. I followed the below instructions and it worked like  a charm.

# fa_mail_phpmailer


Install
- copy the files into '/modules' directory
- download PHPMailer-5.2.14 into '/modules/mail/includes' directory
- replace existing '/reporting/includes/mail.class.inc' with the new provided one

- activate module in FA
- go to "Setup" -> "Mail Sending Setup" and fill in the data.

- that's it.

Note:-

a)I needed to download the specific PHPMailer-5.2.14 for it to work.
b)step two above expected a directory called '/modules/mail/includes/PHPMailer'

Try to see if there are errors in the logs..

Dear,

You are just saying things are not working but your are not providing any information of what is not working. Do you have access to FA error logs? ../tmp/errors.log ? How about your SMTP Setup screen ? What input you have entered? I also have a cloud hosting and it works very well...

Are you hosted on windows? Linux? What FA version you are running?

Without any information/clue no one can find out what you are missing. Only you can find out.

Re: SMS Gateway

I have a sms plugin for FA. You can send forum email to me if needed .
