Title: Can't login anymore after changing DNS
Post by: BlackMonk on October 29, 2015, 06:39:39 pm
My forum is zenaudio.createaforum.com.
My own domain is zenaudio.be. I did use domain forwarding with cloaking, but that had several problems.
So I tried to change the A record of zenaudio.be and www.zenaudio.be to point to 184.171.171.48.
Then I used the domain manager to change the default domain address of the forum to www.zenaudio.be.
Now I cannot login anymore, either with www.zenaudio.be or with zenaudio.createaforum.com. It just presents the login prompt over and over again saying that I should give a user name, while one is already visible in the proper field!
After a while, surfing to www.zenaudio.be showed the default createaforum homepage, not my forum.
I changed the zenaudio.be back to dns forwarding with cloaking, but that didn't solve the login problem.
So I'm stuck. In other words: HELP!

Yeah that won't work. Domain cloaking/fowarding doesn't work
You either need to use private nameservers or dns changes

Okay, I deleted the dns forwarding with cloaking again and changed the A records of both zenaudio.be  and www.zenaudio.be back to 184.171.171.48.
That wil show the createaforum homepage, however, not my forum. So what now?

Looks good! http://www.intodns.com/zenaudio.be
If you can't see it yet you may have to wait 24 hours or flush your dns.

I can't login to the forum and none of my users can. We all get the same login screen over and over again insisting that we enter a user name, although we already did that.

You will need to wait 24 hours for dns to update or flush your dns cache that is the only way.

I did refresh the dns cache of my router. nslookup shows 184.171.171.98 as the ip adress for www.zenaudio.be (http://www.zenaudio.be).
The logon problem persists.
Here's a screenshot. I used the Dutch language pack, so everything is in Dutch. You can see the problem anyway, I think.

Fixed one thing the http://www.zenaudio.be was listed as a parked domain so it is pulling up correctly now on my end.

It does show correctly, but it keeps presenting me with the logon screen and "you need to enter a user name" although I did that already.
