Doulbe urls in Joomla 3.1

Post by Undutchable30 » Sun Jul 21, 2013 10:15 pm

Ls.,

I did already read several forum posts here and on other sites in order to find out the reason for double url's, but so far no solution.

My site: http://www.family-martens.comis running Joomla 3.1.1 and even clicking on the website preview button in the Admin portal immediately opens http://www.family-martens.com/www.family-martens.com/. The template I use here from Siteground also has a double url under the home-link.

-I did switch off Search Engine Friendly URLs and Use URL rewriting, without luck.
-I did try to add the var $live_site, but this gives an error when opening the site, seems this is not supported in Joomla 3.1 anymore.
-I did install Joomla 2.5 and again 3.1 but in both versions the double url is present?

Any idea what I can try next and I hope I did not miss an answered post already ;-)

Thanks,

Bart

Welcome to Joomla forum!

This is odd behavior. How did you install Joomla?

Do you have a shared hosting environment for your family-martens.com domain? In which directory did you install it?
Or did you install it under another domain and added the family-martens domain to its DNS?
Do you use .htaccess?

Maybe you'd better contact your hosting provider...

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your response and indeed it is odd.
I have a hosted package and for every domain an own environment. I did install it via my hosting provider who also adjusted the dns settings.
I am not aware I do use .htaccess.

I will also contact my hostingprovider with this question.

Thanks,

Bart

Peter,

I did approach my hosting company and we have found the problem. Shame Mode On: In the configuration.php I had to change the public $live_site='' to 'http://www.family-martens.com' Shame Mode Off

What I did wrong was to enter var $live_site='http://www.family-martens.com' which gave the error message. Searching for the public $live_site pointer did not give any results.

So the issue can be closed as being solved.

Thanks,

Bart
