Recommended Posts

My hosting company is migrating my site from a raq server to a plesk server

 

i need a hand updating the configuration so the site will run on the new server

 

1) there is a folder called httpdocs and httpsdocs the raq server only had the one folder what do i have to do differently here

 

2) the server does not seem to locate default.php , only index.php how do i get it to find default.php with out redirecting?

 

Thank you,

I used to use plesk..

 

Your secure pages are served from and need to be loaded in httpSdocs. All others go in httpdocs.

 

In your .htaccess file in your web root (/httpdocs), add the following (or change if its already there):

 

DirectoryIndex default.php

 

This will make default.php the home page, with no redirect necessary.

Hmm..that i cant answer. Typically, all your files that will be SSL'd (Checkout, account, login, etc) - I'd suggest searching, as i've seen this answered before.

Does anyone know the correct solution to use a virtual link when you have httpdocs and httpsdocs on the same server using shared hosting

 

I don't want to have to uload 2 copies of all the files!

 

here is what i emailed my hosting company:

 

 

 

 

As I believe I do not access I will need a hand creating a virtual link to my httpdocs folder from my httpsdocs

 

 

 

Here is the solution that I could find:

I am not sure exactly what has to be done I do not want to have to copy the entire site to both httpdocs and httpsdocs

 

 

 

The consensus seems to be creating a symbolic link to httpdocs from httpsdocs

 

 

 

But I do not know enough about apache to know if this would work

 

Or if this would cause problems with the ssl certificate

from the old forum would this work????..........

 

(i am not going to do #3 by the way)

 

Well you can do one of three things....

 

1. Change your httpsd.conf file to have both services point to the same directory.

 

2. Make /usr/local/plesk/apache/vhosts/certifydev.com/httpSdocs/ actually be a symbolic link to the other directory or vice versa.

 

3. Upload two complete copies of OSC, images and all.
