I have purchased a forum, and am trying to hold my ground with it. It has a few thousand members already registered, and a semi-active community. I have never owned a forum, nor posted in them very often. There seems to be some issues with registering for the forum, I have tried to create a 'bogus' account to register, and I cannot get it to work. There is a required email verification, but when I try to register with a new account, the email is never received, so the potential member never gets the opportunity to actually register. I realize this is very vague, but im not even sure where to start. I have full access to the server files, and xenforo admin panel, but I have no idea what im looking at. The server error log seems to be pretty 'active' but looks like gobblygook to me.
Anyone have any suggestions? Again..im a noob
