Hi all,

Its been a couple years since I played with XOOPS and I have forgot alot.

I recently been working on another XOOPS site and am having some issues.

I'm using XOOPS v. 2.0.16

1. I used fantastico to install xoops. During installation I set it to install into root directory. So it should have came out with the start page as http ://www. sitename.com. But it didnt install that way. My XOOPS homepage is only working as .com/index.php.

What do I have to do to make it so if someone types in address as sitename.com it puts them on the XOOPS homepage instead of my generic "site coming soon" index.html page?


2. Also what do I have to do to stop the double login issues, with http ://sitename and http ://www.sitename?

Thanks,
All

Rob
Thanks for everything!

Rob

I forgot to delete my index.html file from root directory.



Question #2 still open.
Thanks for everything!

1. Remove the index.html file on your server root.

Redirect the first to the second using .htaccess or changing your DNS records

Redirecting 'http://' to 'http://www' using .htaccess is better for SEO too.

I don't have access to the line of code right now, but you should find it with a web search.

Ok for #2 here is what I found.

Quote:
Redirect to www (htaccess redirect)

Create a .htaccess file with the below code, it will ensure that all requests coming in to domain.com will get redirected to www. domain.com
The .htaccess file needs to be placed in the root directory of your old website (i.e the same directory where your index file is placed)

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
rewritecond %{http_host} ^domain.com [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www .domain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]

Please REPLACE domain.com and www .newdomain.com with your actual domain name.

Note* This .htaccess method of redirection works ONLY on Linux servers having the Apache Mod-Rewrite moduled enabled.


This is the code I used and it seems to be working ok. Except, When I went to login using the login block, it brought up the login/register page. I had to use that login form to get logged in. As far as the pages redirecting to www, all seem to be working ok, even the admin side of site.

Thanks.
Thanks for everything!

Try emptying the contents of the 'templates_c' folder and/or rebuilding the system module (click the 'drive' icon next to the system module in 'system admin/modules').

Ok, I emptied the 'templates_c' folder. But when I try to update the system, (or any module) I get the message
Quote:
Could not update System

Back to Module Administration page

Did you perhaps delete index.html from templates_c folder?

Hi rob777,

I have it on good authority that you should perhaps look at your mailfile.php

look at define( 'XOOPS_URL'

delete index.php off the end of the url

Save the file (with correct permissions)

Then grab yourself a latté

I've posted on behalf of a good friend. RIP
