SMTP settings not applied by openEdx Juniper.3

Hello,

I am having trouble to setup my local insance of openEdx (Virtualbox guest). I ran throught lot of web pages and tutorials but nothing fixed my issue. My version is Juniper.3

Basically, I am trying to setup SMTP by using the recommended files (thus no common.py) :
/edx/app/edxapp/lms.auth.json

  • “EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD”: “Mypwd”
  • “EMAIL_HOST_USER”: “notification@email”

/edx/app/edxapp/cms.auth.json

  • “EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD”: “Mypwd”
  • “EMAIL_HOST_USER”: “notification@email”

/edx/app/edxapp/lms.env.json

  • “DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL”: “notification@email”
  • “EMAIL_BACKEND”: “django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend”
  • “EMAIL_HOST”: “ooo.mail.ooo”
  • “EMAIL_PORT”: 587
  • “EMAIL_USE_TLS”: true

/edx/app/edxapp/cms.env.json

  • “DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL”: “notification@email”
  • “EMAIL_BACKEND”: “django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend”
  • “EMAIL_HOST”: “ooo.mail.ooo”
  • “EMAIL_PORT”: 587
  • “EMAIL_USE_TLS”: true

Then I updated my openEdx like this :
/edx/bin/supervisorctl restart lms
/edx/bin/supervisorctl restart cms
/edx/bin/supervisorctl restart edxapp_worker:

Restarts are all done ok but when I am trying to send activation email, nothing come up ?

I had a look in /edx/var/log/lms/edx.log and no error warning that may help…

I tried to figure out what may be the network traffic coming from my openEdx with Wireshark and absolutely nothing intresting is put through…

If somebody could provide me with some help that would be great.

Juniper doesn’t use the files lms.env.json, lms.auth,json, cms.env.json or cms.auth.json in /edx/app/edxapp anymore for configuration.

The new files to use are in /edx/etc/lms.yml and /edx/etc/studio.yml

Thanks Pierre for your help. It is bloody working !! Many thanks !!

Surprisingly, I got same similar issues in term of files, with my custom theme.
Does it mean that from now every custom setting will sit in these files ?
Is there any up to date documentation for Juniper 3 ?
