Hi everyone,

This is probably something really, really basic and stupid... but.... I'm stuck...

My site seems to be "stuck" on hard coded localhost urls. I can't view my site from a different machine, everything comes up as localhost in the url.

Works fine on my box, but no joy from any other...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Ted

Ok, I solved the problem myself.

I had to manually edit the mainfile.php file and change:

define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://localhost/xoops/html');

to

define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://my_specific_url/xoops/html');

This drove me nuts trying to track down.

oh? it's in the FAQ, and the search feature should have given you some result... Glad you have it working tho Be sure to click the 'update' icon in the system admin -> modules page for at least the system module (but article and blog modules too, most likely), because they use the same hardcoded base URL, and sometimes store it in a cached file.
