Solved [Q] "The supplied domain name is not well configured"

Post by larsn84 on April 29th 2011, 2:46 pm

Hi

We just created a new forum (it's in the danish, so I don't expect you to understand what it says) Very Happy

http://androidtips.unlimitedforum.com/

Now we have bought our own domain name, and tried following the guide to configuring it, it seems that we are doing something wrong though, since we get this message:

The supplied domain name is not well configured
You have no CNAME redirecting to : androidtips.unlimitedforum.com


We've put in the details as shown in the attached photo at the DNS config page of our domain, and the CNAME should be configured properly.

I tried a various different combinations though, but nothing seems to work.

What are we doing wrong? The domain is activated, so it can't be it.


thanks in advance

Did you purchase your domain outside of Forumotion? If so, have you checked out this topic: http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/redirect-an-extern-domain-name-that-you-own-to-your-board-t7021.htm ?

Okay, please bear in mind that the interface in the tutorial may not look the exactly like yours but the principal is the same.

Getting this message now

The supplied domain name is not well configured
You have no CNAME redirecting to : androidtips.unlimitedforum.com
You have configured a A type DNS ( A type redirects to an IP address, and not to a textual domain name like the CNAME )
