domain name won't forward properly (3 posts)

    My domain name is richardsilverstein.com. My WP blog url is http://www.richardsilverstein.com/tikun_olam. Right now, for some reason I cannot understand, when I type http://www.richardsilverstein.com or richardsilverstein.com into my browser it takes me to my server file index & not to my blog as I would like.

    My domain is now being forwarded to http://www.richardsilverstein.com/ . Should be forwarded to http://www.richardsilverstein.com/tikun_olam or what? Earlier today, I tried setting it to the latter path but it ended up slowing down my site something fierce (which might've had something to do w. the fact that I'm trying to create mod_rewrite rules for ht access to convert links from my old blog into good links for WP). Something in both might've conflicted in some way.

    Any help would be welcomed.

    I see no file there that will do the redirection - how are you doing it ?

    I'm sorry for not being clear. I'm using godaddy.com where my domain is registered to forward my domain.

    But today I have a diff. problem w. domain forwarding (at least I think that's where the problem lies) in that I have no access to my blog no matter what I type into my browser.

    In order to get mod_rewrite rules inserted into the htaccess file in my public_html folder I tried changing my domain forwarding path at godaddy.com from http://www.richardsilverstein.com to http://www.richardsilverstein.com/tikun_olam. I'm not sure whether this caused the following problem but after that point I had terribly long wait times before the link would resolve & go to my site (if it ever got there).

    Then I changed my domain forwarding path to http://www.richardsilverstein.com/ . I don't know whether the trailing '/' was the problem, but today I have no access to the site at all. So I've gone back to godaddy.com & changed the domain path back to what it was at the beginning http://www.richardsilverstein.com . We'll see if that resolves.
