Leah would like her commons site - http://murphyinstituteblog.commons.gc.cuny.edu/ to be mapped to SLUblog.org

Right now it is mapped to murphyinstituteblog.org

She will redirect murphyinstituteblog.org to SLUblog.org once the mapping is complete

She has pointed SLUblog.org's CNAME to the Commons

Hi - Is there any update on this?

#4 Updated by Boone Gorges 8 months ago

Matt - it looks like this hasn't been added by Lihua. Could you send the request please?

#5 Updated by Matt Gold 8 months ago

Sorry for the delay on this. just put in the request

From Lihua:

"Hi Matt,

Based on DNS lookup, there is no A record or CNAME set up for slublog.org yet:

https://network-tools.com/nslook/Default.asp?domain=slublog.org&type=255&server=8.8.8.8&class=1&port=53&timeout=5000&go.x=18&go.y=14

We cannot set up SSL until there is an A or CNAME record for the domain.

Thanks,
Lihua"

#7 Updated by scott voth 8 months ago

Hi - I have contacted Leah and she believes that she has created the required CNAME record. Please see attached. Is there something that is incorrect?

#8 Updated by Boone Gorges 8 months ago

The DNS entry is for www, ie www.slublog.org. In accordance with the recent discussion with Lihua, there should be an @ entry that covers slublog.org (no subdomain), with subdomains like www. directed to slublog.org via redirects rather than DNS entries.

#9 Updated by scott voth 8 months ago

Hi Boone - Leah has now created a "@" cname record and deleted the "www" cname record. Can you see if it's ok?

#10 Updated by scott voth 8 months ago

Also, since it is a switchover - does she need to remove the cname record on murphyinstituteblog.org?

Looks like the DNS for slublog.org is correct now.

Once the setup is complete, she should remove the CNAME record for murphyinstituteblog.org and set up a redirect to slublog.org. Then we can inform Lihua that he can remove murphyinstituteblog.org from his provisioning scripts.

#12 Updated by Matt Gold 7 months ago

Hi Boone and Scott -- response from Lihua:

"Hi Matt,

the ssl cert for slublog.org has been generated and mapping has been completed at the server level.

Please ask Boone to map the external domain to the commons site.

Please ask the user to redirect murphyinstituteblog.org to slublog.org so that we can remove mapping for the old domain.

Thanks,
Lihua"

Mapping is complete.

I'm leaving this ticket open as a reminder for Scott to ping the user about creating the redirect for the old domain.

#14 Updated by scott voth 7 months ago

Thanks Boone - I have let Leah know.

#15 Updated by scott voth 7 months ago

She has created the redirect. Apparently there was not a CNAME record but instead an "A" record. I have ask her to delete that one.

Just to confirm, when she is making changes to the site, she should go to http://murphyinstituteblog.commons.gc.cuny.edu/ ?
