Changing IP address


Ive been ask to get access to a linux mandrake machine and change its IP address - then told it has an intranet and its really useful.

Turns out to be Geeklog 1.3 - i havent heard of it before, looks interesting.

Ive changed the IP address in -
thru your help pages i also found an entry in /var/www/html/geeklog/config.php pointing to the old address -
$_CONF['site_url'] = '';
have changed this to reflect the new address of

the system is running Apache 2.0, i expected to find an entry under virtual hosts with the ip details, to me it looks like its wrapped up in php - php is beyond me.

When i try to connect to the newly addressed system '' it changes the ip address back to the original address '' then reports 'the page cannot be displayed'
Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

$_CONF['site_url'] ist the variable that defines the URL of the Geeklog site. All other URLs are derived from that value.

In other words: The problem must lie somewhere else, outside of Geeklog.

You have to set the correct path to config.php in /public_html/lib-common.php as well, but I doubt if that's what you're looking for.

check the server name and alias settings in the apache httpd.conf

they should match the new IP.
