Parking a URL and setting it as the primary URL

Post by mikedijital » Sun Mar 17, 2013 4:00 am

My forum files sit in a folder located at mikedijital.us/d5 Recently I passed the forum control to a friend, the forum is called deggi5.com so we bought that url, and parked ( associated ) the url into the /d5 folder

So rather than going to mikedijital.us/d5/index people can go to deggi5.com/index

we have been able to rid the mikedijital.us/d5 url from everything but the email notifications and topic reply notifications. those link the mikedijital.us/d5 url in the " go to topic " or " go to PM Box " links in the email.

this wouldnt be a problem except we changed the cookie setting to .deggi5.com rather than .mikedijital.us so people need to relog in when they click the link in the notification email

is this something im stuck with, or is there a setting in the ACP that can fix this

thank you

im running 3.0.11

Path settings

Smilies storage path: images/smilies
Path under your phpBB root directory, e.g. images/smilies.

Post icons storage path: images/icons
Path under your phpBB root directory, e.g. images/icons.

Extension group icons storage path: images/upload_icons
Path under your phpBB root directory, e.g. images/upload_icons.

Rank image storage path: images/ranks
Path under your phpBB root directory, e.g. images/ranks.

Server URL settings

Force server URL settings: No
If set to yes the server settings defined here will be used in favour of the automatically determined values.
Yes No

Server protocol: http://
This is used as the server protocol if these settings are forced. If empty or not forced the protocol is determined by the cookie secure settings (http:// or https://).

Domain name: mikedijital.us
The domain name this board runs from (for example: www.example.com).

Server port: 80
The port your server is running on, usually 80, only change if different.

Script path: /d5
The path where phpBB is located relative to the domain name, e.g. /phpBB3.



thank you so much for any help you can give.

Try the following settings:
  • Force server URL settings: Yes
  • Server protocol: http://
  • Domain name: deggi5.com
  • Server port: 80
  • Script path: /
And delete every file in the /cache folder except .htaccess and index.htm
