#14351 closed Question/How do I...? (fixed)

Can't find field for alias

Reported by: HistoriCUSS Owned by: JaimeV
Priority: Medium Component: Tech
Keywords: ServerAlias Cc:
Sensitive: no

Description

I added a new domain (FindCarla.net) and several others that will point to it.

Followed FAQ https://support.mayfirst.org/wiki/faq/domain/add-domain-web-config

CP > WebConfig > Edit > Add domains to ServerAlias

I can't see any line that starts with "ServerAlias"

Has CP been modified so that this FAQ is out of date?

Trying to get [www.]FindCarla.(net/live/group/info/network) to redirect to FindCarla.net as the main content site.

Yes, sorry for the confusion. The control panel was recently updated and we haven't caught up with changing the documentation. You should add new domains to the fields in the new Domain Names section of your web configuration. I've just updated that page in our documentation.

What does adding the additional domain names to the web configuration do?

I had already created "a" records for all of them. Is it unrelated?

The "a" type DNS records are also important as they specify which server ip address the domains should resolve to.

The "Domain Name" fields in the web configuration are added to the apache configuration for your site and tell apache that this site should respond to all of those domains.
