Hi everyone. This problem is hard to explain in words, but it’s causing real problems, so I’ll do my best to describe.
I have a WordPress installation on my 1&1 hosting. The formal address of my blog is http://www.mogstop.com/mohan37/wordpress. “mogstop.com” is the domain that is attached to my hosting.
However, I use “mohan37.com” as my website address. mohan37.com, also with 1&1, is set to use “http://www.mogstop.com/mohan37/wordpress” as its home directory. That’s the advertised address of my site.
Everything appears to work properly, except WordPress won’t remember anyone’s info if they visit and comment using mohan37.com. It doesn’t recognize me as a logged in admin either. But if you visit/comment through mogstop.com/mohan37/wordpress, the site does remember visitor info and recognize logged in people.
Additionally, when I visit using mohan37.com, WordPress Stats counts my visits, even if I’m logged in. It does not if I visit from the formal mogstop address.
Does anyone know what I can do? Does this have something to do with the way browser cookies are being saved? something getting confused b/c mohan37 isn’t technically where the site is hosted? Surely this can’t be a unique problem – wordpress being installed on hosting w/ one domain, but pointed at using another domain name.
I’m desparate…if this didn’t make sense, I can answer questions and maybe make it more clear.
