I am not a computer person but trying to get a phpBB website up and running. Did things in this particular order
- installed phpBB with bitnami in google cloud
- got static IP - 188.8.131.52
- got a domain name (career-assist.net) and forwarded it to this ip
I had two problem but I guess both of them were related.
First problem - The domain name was forwarding it to the correct IP. In the address bar of the browser, the IP address was shown: like http://184.108.40.206/index.php NOT career-assist.net/index.php
Second problem - in the registration page (http://220.127.116.11/ucp.php?mode=register&sid) of the forum it was also showing the IP address.
to fix the problem, I ran following command
sudo ./bnconfig --machine_hostname career-assist.net
Now the first problem above it as it is and in the second problem, it is now showing the port career-assist.net:80/phpbb . It reads like "By accessing “Career Assist” (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”, “Career Assist”, “http://career-assist.net:80/phpbb”), blah blah"
So how to fix it?
What can do to reverse
sudo ./bnconfig --machine_hostname career-assist.net command
Thanks for helping
I couldnt find a forum for phpbb so posting here
I just tried to refresh the domain forwarding to domain name will not take you three but the ip address will
