WPMU confused about the domain - how to fix? (7 posts)

    This is somewhat a continuation of
    http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic.php?id=9696

    Originally the installation was setup with domain A - a temp domain. After the site was functional I pointed the actual domain to the WPMU server.

    At this point WPMU things whatever blog I'm trying to call up doesn't exist, so it automatically goes to the signup page.

    I have manually gone through the database and changed ALL references of domain A to domain B - also have looked through the config files for any reference to the domain.

    What am I missing? I'd rather not re-create the site from scratch.

    Did you re-check and re-configure the DNS wildcards and Apache settings from the readme ?

    This isn't my server - but I did have the hosting company tech support doublecheck, and they say everything is OK there.

    And you did a search on the entire db for the old domain name?
    And the new one is fully resolved?

    Yup - searched through the entire DB. There is not a single reference to the old domain in it. New domain is spelled correctly, no extra spaces etc.

    Thanks for the "Changing the Site URL" link - I just found that last night, and am (slowly) working my way through it. Several of things listed there I've already done, but it is nice to have a checklist!

    It looks like the php coding is looking at the expected domain, sees that there's a difference, and automatically bumping over to the wp-signup page.

    Hey all you DNS "guessperts" out there (is it possible to be an 'expert" with DNS? Just wondering....) - Given this is what's been done:

    Initiated a domain transfer from hosting company.
    Find out domain is locked and private, and client doesn't have access info.
    Contacted hosting company to cancel transfer request
    Set GoDaddy DNS settings to use new server.

    Is it possible something on the hosts Debian server got wonky?

    Uh, yeah. There's probably some stuff that got really wonked up with that.
