.org and .net - same geeklog

New User

My web site has two domains, .org and .net, both of which are pointed to the same public_html directory and are supposed to display exactly the same Geeklog. I noticed that everything works perfectly under the .net installation, but I cannot log in using the .org domain. Banging your head

Is there an easy way to make the site available and functional under both domains (if so, please tell me what files I need to edit and how), or will I be forced to forward all .org requests to the .net domain?

Thank you!

That won't work due to the cookies (as you already noticed).

Create a .htaccess (assuming you're on an Apache webserver) that contains this:
Text Formatted Code
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.example.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^$
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.example.com/$1 [L,R]

Replace "www.example.com" with the preferred domain for your site.

Now when someone comes in through www.example.org, they are immediately redirected to www.example.com.

bye, Dirk

On my local server I use this
Text Formatted Code

$_CONF['site_url']          = 'http://'.$_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"].'/~grant/geeklog';


So I can access from ip address or hostname, and so I can always reach it since I have a dynamic IP address.
