problem setting up new domain





inphurno
Hi all,

I followed the instructions in this post: [url] http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-49716.html[/url] to setup up my new domain votreimpact.org. i can login via ftp and i can access the url with a browser but i cant add the domain in DIrectAdmin i get the error "That domain already exists". the prob is that votreimpact.org doesn't appear in the list of my domains after i login but i can do something like http://votreimpact.org/config and that works. its like the domain is created but i cant access the other stuff like creating email accounts. any help on this would be greatly appreciated! Very Happy

Login here - http://www.frih.net:2222/CMD_ADDITIONAL_DOMAINS (edited by Bondings, wrong ip address)

Listed should be all your domains (if not, then it means your new domain wasn't added correctly)
Make sure NONE are ticked. This may sort out your issue as ....

When there is a default domain ticked, even if your under a different domain in dAdmin, when you click a link the default domain is used.

Does this help?

Hi Wumingsden,

I went to http://www.frih.net:2222/CMD_ADDITIONAL_DOMAINS and I do not see votreimpact.org in the list and none fo them are ticked. I followed the instructions in http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-49716.htm but maybe I should explain what I did.

I bought the domain from 1and1.com, under domain overview i put a checkmark beside votreimpact.org in the list and click on dns. under Name Server Settings i added ns1.frih.net and ns2.frih.net when i saw that the status was ready i tried to add the domain in DirectAdmin but i got the error: "That domain already exists".

Let me know what I'm doing wrong... Confused

I havent done this in awhile, but I would setup the domain in DirectAdmin before configuring the Name Servers at 1and1.

Well these instructions are in a sticky at the top of this section. If this is not the way to setup please let me know how to do this Very Happy

ok well now at http://www.votreimpact.org/ i have a test page for a SSL/TLS-aware Apache webserver, it must be going somewhere else than my frihost space because my url rewite rule doesnt work anymore but this works: http://votreimpact.org:2222. i dont know where its going but this was working the other day so i dont know what happend. this is really starting to be annoying i dont understand why this didnt work and now all my links are pointing to a domain that doesnt work and i had already 301 all the traffic to the new domain Sad.

i have removed the folder i could see under domains in my ftp and i have changed the dns back to 1&1's name server. now i have to revert everything back to the old domain. any help on getting this domain working would really help me out. thanks in advance

I have added the domain to your DirectAdmin Account. Normally if you change your nameservers to ns1.frih.net and ns2.frih.net (and remove anything else), it should work once propagated.
inphurno
ok thanks a lot Bondings! Very Happy i've re-uploaded the files and i've changed the name servers back to frihost. in 1and1's control panel it says updating so should be ok but i'll let you know if there was any problems... Cool
wumingsden
Sorry about my late reply ...

Indeed you did the steps correctly. It may of been because it takes sometimes quite a while for the nameservers to change correctly, or a temp. problem with the server.

Either way, just reply in a day or two with an update Smile
inphurno
ok well looks to be ok now so i have put back the 301s. i hope everything stays functional this time Very Happy if nto i'll just bother you guys again.
thanks for your help!

Ok i'm new to this, don't know what i'm doing....

so...

IS there somewhere on here that gives precise...step by step instructions on HOW to put my website on this server? I got approved, I uploaded files, but it is still not working.

Please point me in the right direction. This is for my college Web page design class using Dreamweaver DS3, and it is due tonight!

Thanks,
inphurno
looks like i'm a bit to respond but where did you upload the files? lets say the domain they gave you is wendy_b.frih.org then you should upload the files to /domains/wendy_b.frih.org/public_html

you can also try looking through the posts in the Web Hosting Support section here: http://www.frihost.com/forums/vf-8.html

you should make a new post in this section if you cant get it working instead of adding your comments here to an existing thread like that more people will see your question. also please give more details in your post of what you did and what doesn't work so people can help you better
