    Although the index page comes up on the .com site, as soon as I sign in it takes me to the address, where I have to sign in again :?

    Hi Naomi

    The issue here Naomi is that the software that's running tMP has been told that the main domain it needs to present the information to is the domain. When I get back home tomorrow (and on a fast BB connection as opposed to an expensive 28K dial-up in Amsterdam hotel room), I will reconfigure the software to refer to the .com domain. Things should be back to normal then at last... ;)

    Bring on the next phase....;)

    Yeh the prob I have with the .com is that when I go into one of the topics it then clears all the topics as read....does that make sense>

    In other words I could have 8 topics to read but when I go onto say the rehearsal room all the other topics have then cleared themselves before I have looked at them :cry:

    That happens to me too, I think it's a cookie problem as John suggested earlier but clearing them doesn't help as I think it's because the links point to but the initial log-in cookie will come from the Once all the links are switched back to .com then you might well have the same problem if you access the main page using the address.

    All this is a total guess of course but it would seem to fit with the other observations about the links being to I don't know much about how phpBB works but if that is the problem then it might be possible to make the links relative to the current page rather than including the domain in them every time. Any idea if that's possible John?

    Solved my problem by going back to until John finally sorts out the change.
    It works ok for me that way.

    Ok folks.. at last I have finally completed the domain move and the server move. I have made somne configuration changes this evening and you will all need to delete the cookie settings on your machines.

    For Internet Explorer:
    Makes sure that you have only one instance of IE open
    Got to Tools>Internet Options>Delete Cookies
    Close IE
    Open IE
    Visit and you will need to log into tMP again

    Hey presto!

    Can anyone who uses Netscape, Firefox, Mozilla or Opera drop me a PM please with instructions as to how to do the same thing with those apps.

    Hopefully everything is now back to normal. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding whilst we went through our move to a new home.
