Support » Plugin: DreamSpeed CDN (RETIRED) » Can’t set CDN Alias

  • Resolved maikunari


    Hi and thanks again for the great plugin.

    My client alerted me that the images on his site were being served with the URL rather than the Alias I had set up. When I look at the plugin settings under Paths the CDN Alias field is greyed out and I can’t enter text into it (screenshot):

    Is this field dependant upon another setting? Or do I need to change something on the Dreamhost side of things?

    Thanks very much!

    Could there be another reason that that field is greyed out?
