IP Adres to DNS name

Post by Jaspers05 » Fri Aug 15, 2014 7:34 am

Hi all,

So this is what happend. I installed my phpMyFAQ on a Ubuntu Server 14. We entirly configured and filled the FAQ by connecting on the IP address of the server. Now we want to change the IP address and link it to a DNS name, but now my entire phpMyFAQ is not functioning any more.

Can anybody help me with this?

Hi,

just change the URL in the database table "faqconfig" for the config key "main.referenceURL" to the new domain name.

Thank you for the push in the right direction.

For everyone else, this i what i did on my ubuntu server terminal:
mysql -u root -p
SHOW databases;
USE databasename;
SELECT * FROM faqconfig;
UPDATE faqconfig SET config_value='http://phpmyfaq.mydomain.com' WHERE config_value='http://ipaddressofmyserver';
