Problem with //$closeRegister=1

Ok, i'd like to set it up so people cant reg. w/bogus emails so i set //$closeRegister=1. I also have $genEmailDisable=0 and $emailusers=1. However, it is not doing what it says it will. Upon registering, they still have an option to pick their own password and it does not email them a password. Am I missing something?

Are you familiar with PHP?


actually means COMMENTED string. Of course, it will not work (and by default, it is not working) - you need to uncomment it:

Of course, if it worked earlier, and doesn't work now, the error is on your side, it's not related to miniBB. miniBB script can't change its mind and stop working one day just because it's tired. Most probably it's a hosting issue.

But also it is possible that your email server blocking automated emails coming from your forum. Try to check bulk/spam folders, add your domain to the allowed domains list etc.
