Configure SMTP for outbound emails

To manually configure the email settings for Multicraft, follow these steps:

  • Edit the /opt/bitnami/apps/multicraft/htdocs/protected/config/internal/application.php file and look for the uncommented transportOptions section.

  • Update this to reflect your SMTP server details. For instance, for a Gmail configuration, it would look something like this. Replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your Gmail account username and password respectively.

    'transportOptions' => array(
        'host' => '',
        'username' => '',
        'password' => 'PASSWORD',
        'port' => '587',
        'encryption' => 'tls',
  • Make sure that the transportType variable is set to “smtp”.

After this, Multicraft should be configured to send emails. You can also visit the Multicraft administration panel to update your mail preferences.

To configure the application to use other third-party SMTP services for outgoing email, such as SendGrid, refer to the FAQ.

NOTE: If you are using Gmail as the outbound email server and have experienced issues trying to send emails correctly, check the Gmail SMTP troubleshooting page to learn the causes of these issues and how to solve them.
