Yet another addon domain question.





Texas Al
Honest, I searched the message board before asking this, and there were some people with similar questions but as far as I can tell not the same one as I have. Smile

I registered vizulab.net and set its nameservers ns1.frihost.net and ns2.frihost.net from the registrar's site.

I waited for it to propogate and then made it an addon domain and had it point at http://al.frihost.net/idlabs/ (with the trailing slash).

It goes where it's supposed to but it doesn't hide the 'real' domain. For instance, instead of http://vizulab.net/index.php I'm still seeing http://al.frihost.net/idlabs/index.php

What's the procedure for making it do what I'm trying to do? Thanks for your help.

I had the same problem and bondings sorted it for me, you will have to wait for him to sort it.

I tried, tried and nothing seems to work. I even deleted the addon domain and put it on a new subdomain, vizulab, but it still redirects to .../idlabs/. I have completely no idea why this is the case.

Normally it is always recommanded to set up an addon domain in an empty, non-existent subdomain. I think that mambo who was already there, were the cause of your problem. It's better to install mambo after you set up the addon domain, imo.

If you want, I can make you a new account, but you will have to install everything again.

The Vizulab thing isn't a production site yet. I'm testing stuff out to flush out problems just like this one. Smile

What if I removed all my current addons, redirects, and subdomains, then created vizulab, and pointed it at a brand new directory. Then installed mambo in that directory. Do you think it would work?

Yea i'd do that, just backup what you need.

I sure hope that would work.

We might as well simplify the problem, since Mambo has nothing to do with it.

It seems to me that the first step would be to just have subdirectory with a little "hello world" index.html in it.

So far I can get vizulab.al.frihost.net to go to that directory just fine (or I did until I deleted the vizulab.net addon domain). Now if I can just have the user see http://vizulab.net/index.html in their address bar instead of http://vizulab.al.frihost.net/index.html , I'll be all set.

Then I can reinstall Mambo and so on. And while I'm at it, I'll have a known working .htaccess file to post on this forum so other people will know how it's done. Because I'm sure this question will keep getting asked over and over again until that happens. Wink

Thanks for your help.
