CakePHP - no emails are being sent and there are no error messages

3one5marketing
Hi, i am new to cakephp and currently working on a website that has been developed using it. As part of the site members can refer friends and family via email where their reference number is sent as part of the sign up link. These emails are not sending and there are no error messages to tell if anything is going wrong - i've even tried to use the normal mail() function over CakeEmail() but still no luck. I posted my problem on stackoverflow but it has been put on hold as they think it is not appropriate to ask on that site.

i would really appreciate any help.

i have attached the code below: 

UsersController.php :

public function send_invitation() {
          $user
= $this->Auth->user();
         
//echo "<pre>"; print_r($user); die;
          $this
->layout = "dashboard";
         
if (!empty($this->request->data)) {
               $this
->Reference->set($this->request->data);
               $this
->Reference->setValidation('add');
               
if ($this->Reference->validates()) {
                    $check
= $this->User->find('first', array('conditions' => array('User.email' => $this->request->data['Reference']['email'])));
                   
if (!empty($check)) {
                         $response
['status'] = "error";
                         $response
['message'] = 'Email already registered.';
                         $this
->Session->setFlash($response['message'], $response['status']);
                         
//$this->redirect($this->referer());
                   
}
                    $this
->Reference->save($this->request->data);
                    $language
= $this->Session->read('Config.language');
                   
if ($language == "en" || $language == "") {
                         $emailTemp
= $this->EmailTemplate->find('first', array('conditions' => array('EmailTemplate.title' => 'invitation')));
                   
} else {
                         $emailTemp
= $this->EmailTemplate->find('first', array('conditions' => array('EmailTemplate.title' => 'invitation', 'EmailTemplate.locale' => $language)));
                   
}


                    $emailContent
= $emailTemp['EmailTemplate']['html_content'];
                    $link
= WWWROOT . 'homes/register/' . $user['referral_code'];
                    $senderInfo
= $this->User->find('first', array('conditions' => array('User.id' => $this->request->data['Reference']['user_id']), 'fields' => array('User.fname', 'User.lname')));
                    $sender
= ucwords($senderInfo['User']['fname'] . ' ' . $senderInfo['User']['lname']);
                    $receiver
= $this->request->data['Reference']['name'];
                    $message
= $this->request->data['Reference']['message'];
                    $emailContent
= str_replace(array('$link', '$sender', '$receiver', '$message', '$code'), array($link, $sender, $receiver, $message, $user['referral_code']), $emailContent);
           
           


                    $email
= new CakeEmail();
                    $email
->config('gmail');
                    $email
->template('email_template');
                    $email
->emailFormat('html');
                    $email
->viewVars(array('emailContent' => $emailContent));
                    $email
->to($this->request->data['Reference']['email']);
                    $email
->from(array($emailTemp['EmailTemplate']['from_email'] => 'CoverMyClass'));
                    $email
->subject($emailTemp['EmailTemplate']['subject']);
                   
//echo "<pre>hello..."; print_r($email); die;
                   
try { $email->send(); } catch (Exception $e) { print_r($e); }
                   
                   
//$response['status'] = "success";
                   
//$response['message'] = 'Invitation has been sent successfully.';
                   
//$this->Session->setFlash($response['message'], $response['status']);
                   
/*$this->redirect($this->referer());*/
               
}
         
}

          $this
->set("user", $user);
     
}
