URL being redirected


Recommended Posts

When I attempt to view my store using the url http://www.mitchryder.com/store I am redirected to https://mitchryder.secure.powweb.co...4541463fd12f2c8 which gives a 'cannot find server' error until you refresh the page.


I've tried it from several machines so its not a cache problem. I am sure its something in the config but I'm just not sure how to resolve this. I have nothing in htacess that redirects my store's url.


can anyone help me with this? PLEASE!

Check your index code and make sure you are using htaccess on your site. My site was hacked several weeks ago by a person redirecting to a site in the Sovit Union.


I replace the index and deleted the redirect file along with the image they uploaded. They were thankfully just playing around.

My store has been at http://www.mitchryder.com/store for over a year - this just started happening a few days ago. I haven't made any changes to the store or to the site in months. My problem seems to be only with the store url and what's driving me crazy is that I can't find the extra http:// or anyplace in the store directory or anywhere else for that matter that causing this redirection.


My site will come up without the www however I never code anything that way (just a habit). If clear my cache and type in the url or if I try to use a link from anywhere else on the site I get the store logoff url I mentioned earlier.


I really hate to re-install the store but I just may have to do that.

My host made some changes to the way subdomain resolve. Why its affecting me has not been answered yet (I don't have any subdomains). But after days of fighting with this issue I think I've figured it out!


each of my directories need a trailing slash -


http://www.mitchryder.com/store redirects to http://mitchryder.com/store/


http://www.mitchryder.com/store/ seems to work now.


YIKES - I'm bald now from all the hair pulling ;)
