I installed XOOPS on a hosting server. Everything is working great but I'm getting a issue with our new DNS name. On the local domain I have http://box81.bluehost.com/~teamadre/main/ and the our new DNS is http://www.adrenaline-gaming.net/

When ever someone uses the new domain name it doesnt keep them logged in and then gives a error report of:

There is no website configured at this address.
You are seeing this page because there is nothing configured for the site you have requested. If you think you are seeing this page in error, please contact the site administrator or datacenter responsible for this site.

When anyone uses the servers domain name and server domain links there ok and stays logged in.

Is there something I missed with Xoops, do I need to move the XOOPS directory to our domains root (public_html) or is this something our host provider can fix?

Edit: I forgot to add that either way all the module links work.

CHeck the mainfile.php file and change the URL from your first one to the new one. It should fix your problems.

// XOOPS Physical Path
// Physical path to your main XOOPS directory WITHOUT trailing slash
// Example: define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', '/home/teamadre/public_html/main');
define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', 'http://www.adrenaline-gaming.net/~teamadre/main');

// XOOPS Virtual Path (URL)
// Virtual path to your main XOOPS directory WITHOUT trailing slash
// Example: define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://box81.bluehost.com/~teamadre/main');
define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://www.adrenaline-gaming.net');

Like that? After I upload the edited mainfile.php it still gives me the error.

EDIT: I just wanted to add that http://www.adrenaline-gaming.net/~teamadre/main does not go to the home page but is getting directed to http://main.team-adrenaline.net/~teamadre/main/ which is wrong. Does this effect the rest since the rest of the site will rely on adrenaline-gaming.net/teamadre/main?

Did you try updating the system module??? (a guess)
Check the FAQ's for virtual and physical path...there might be more there.

C1Team,

The first define is for a path, not a URL. You've defined a URL there so the system doesn't know how to find your "directory" (path).

Currently you have it set to define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', 'http://www.adrenaline-gaming.net/~teamadre/main');

It should be something like:
define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', '/home/your_user_name/public_html');
if you're on a Unix/Linux server

you have your physical path looking strange to me, it shouldn't be with http. It should look something like this, it depends on your server:

/home/teamadre/public_html/main

or

/var/www/vhosts/YOURDOMAIN.COM/httpdocs

define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://www.adrenaline-gaming.net/~teamadre/main');

I read the FAQ and matched the inforamtion to mine but still it shows me logged out when I use adrenaline-gaming.net/~teamadre/main/modules

C1Team,

I believe your XOOPS_URL should just be:
define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://www.adrenaline-gaming.net');

You don't need the additional subdirectory information since you've installed XOOPS in the root of http://www.adrenaline-gaming.net

I installed XOOPS in to a folder called main, which the root of the rented space is public_html.

I have a Added Domain Maintenace in cpanel and the host provider set it up so that adreanline-gaming.net would redirect to the main folder which XOOPS is installed.

I tried with the subfolder and with out them in the define 'XOOPS_URL' and still no luck. Right now the 'XOOPS_URL' is with out the subfolders.

I just don't understand why XOOPS doesn't keep the user logged in under the new DNS.
