Shehee: TheMentalist, are you redirecting anywhere else? like in .htaccess or something?
Stansel: The only input I’ve actually had is to redirect the oujo.co.uk domain to the above subdomain through cPanel
Keenum: Which, I ***ume, does its redirection through editing the .htaccess
Mihaila: I’ve got no way of accessing the oums.org domain, or what I ***ume is the separate installation on oujo.oums.org
Carrigan: TheMentalist: can’t you do web forwarding directly from the domain registrar and avoid this whole fake hosting fiasco?
Shehee: Yeah, fasthosts do web aliasing pretty nicely
Arenivar: I’m not sure, sterndata. My involvement was just to replace their hosting, which implied that they hadn’t found a way to fix the problem
Pearsall: But I’ll look into that if you think that’d be a better solution :
Camano: Once on site, what is the URL supposed to be, TheMentalist
Tribble: Sterndata, oujo.co.uk should redirect to oujo.oums.org
Bramel: And seems to do so correctly, but then throws up errors when navigating directories within that site
Shamapande: Like anything on the navbar
Bisker: Although, as I said, it all works intermittently
Specchio: Ain’t gonna work, TheMentalist.
Redican: What’s the key problem? I’m just trying to understand what the issue is a little
Getchman: As my experience of redirecting sites to eachother before has been fairly straightforward
Kjergaard: Once you get to the site, you need to use the domain as specified in the site_url option.
Shehee: The point is this.you’re not domain aliasing.you’re 301 redirecting
Brouillette: I’m not sure I follow. What about this have I got wrong: the oujo.co.uk domain points to the subdomain, and, once on the subdomain, clicking links on the site should just open them within that subdomain and should no longer care about how the user was redirected there. Obviously that’s not the case, but I’m not sure which bit I’m getting wrong :
Shehee: So the user will always end up at oujo.oums.org
Mortensen: Right, I need to learn a little more about what that actually entails as opposed to aliasing, clearly :
Harvley: So whenever they’re clicking around on oujo.oums.org, what’s actually happening that’s problematic? Intuitively, it seems like they’d be ‘free’ of the redirection stuff once on the actual subdomain
Leverenz: So is the 70 pounds/year a big deal? :-
Jurs: And just host it where the domain points?
Morgon: I’m not sure, sterndata : Sadly I’m the person who seems to know the most about what’s going on, and I’m not at all involved. Nor do I have a great understanding of the problem :
Schnitz: If they’re a non-profit, they may be able to find discounts are quality hosts, too.
Jacobs: Thanks for the tip, I’ll p*** that on
Ehorn: And thanks for the help, sterndata and dcr :
Mackaman: I know that it’s that way for US hosts. there must be something similar from one of the majors in the UK
Beadles: Follow-up question sorry, I’ve disabled the redirection entirely so the oujo.co.uk site is no longer a factor, as far as I can tell, but the subdomain site http://oujo.oums.org/ doesn’t seem to be working by itself. Is that a separate issue which implies that the installation there is dodgy?
Hornlein: Trying to login, for example, redirects to http://oums.org/wp-signup.php?new=oums.org
Bergum: So, from what I can tell, that has Elenbaas to do with the overly-complex redirection stuff we talked about earlier? Or maybe it does.
Shehee: It does.check your url settings for both the site and home urls
Slota: I can’t actually access the stuff on http://oums.org/ i.e. oujo.oums.org myself, so I’ll have to p*** that on. But good to know that I hadn’t caused an extra problem :
Shehee: You can do it directly in wp-config.php
Gunther: Thanks, dcr and opsec
