I've just delved into the WP world and all in all it's going quite well. I have a server at home that I'm using to host the sites. All is working fine except the password emails are not being sent when a user registers. I've hunted quite a lot online but none of the posts that I've found relate specifically to my scenario. Someone hints at 'all I need to do is set the correct ini options' but that's where the clues ended as the topic was closed.
My setup is using XAMPP with virtual hosts being used to redirect the URLs.
Any help is hugely appreciated. thanks!
