Manual change in moodle database
 

We have developped a moodle site for our institution. Students has the facility for email-based self-registration. There is an error in receiving confirmation mail when a student register with our site. The screenshot of the error message displayed while a test registration is performed is attached in the name 'email_confirmation_error.png'.

I have configured the SMTP authentication too. 

When i have done a sample email test, it also showed an error message. The attachment is in the name 'email_test_error.png'.

I have checked the Site administration -> Reports -> Logs for site errors, the screenshot of the logs displayed is attached in the name 'error_logs.png'.

I checked a website which mentioned to configure moodle database manually. I want to know is this the right solution for it and if it is so, how can i do that?

I want to find a solution to this problem.

Hi

You are trying to send the Moodle mails through gmail.com. Although this could be done, it has lot of restrictions and not sirious for a big operation like yours. You should send mail through your own SMTP server! Talk to the administration.

The Moodle Docs should have this. I went through some pages and found that the information is distributed all over. Here is one place: https://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_Moodle#Final_configuration

There is even a Gmail page: https://docs.moodle.org/en/Email_setup_gmail, if you still want to follow that.
