We've had a Xoops site up for years, installed on a DNS server. After disabling the DNS server daemon (named), all pages and modules are accessable except the homepage. I can hit any of the module pages just fine but the homepage hangs when named isn't running. The Redhad server (RHEL4) has several "nameserver" lines pointing to other DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf and nslookup resolves all websites including the homepage for xoops. I'm totally confused about why ONLY the homepage is inaccessable.

Is the server set to use index.php as a default page and is it listed higher than index.htm[l]l and/or default.htm[l]? I've seen instances where this has caused problems in the past.

By the way, both of the links above loaded correctly for me...

What are these links above? Is this a spam??? Files containing virus?

If we don't hear back in few days, I'll remove those links...

In the meantime - do not click on them.

Two days ago my site pacocalderon.net was running fine.

Now the homepage does not load. My iphone says the page went into "too many redirects".

Other pages load ok such as http://pacocalderon.net/modules/myalbum/photo.php?lid=3525&cid=197

I've set the debug mode on. Xoops version is 2.3.3 PHP version is 5.5

Any advice?
