[EP-tech] technical question: one archive with two domains



Hi,
This might be a really bad idea (but it might be genius)?

Could you output a <base href="?"/> tag (using the dynamic template system), *and* make sure all links are relative?

Cheers,
John

Subject: [EP-tech] technical question: one archive with two domains

Hey there,
I'm still trying to configure my eprints archive to work with two domains. I tried all your suggestions (except mod_substitute) in different ways, but it still don't work.
My goal: I want to access one archive using two different domains. So I modified the apache-includes to add a ServerAlias, this part works fine: domain1 and domain2 show the exact same website. My problem: It is the EXACT same website, so all links are the same, too. So if i use one of the links on domain2, I go to domain1 and do not remain on domain2.
Do you have any more ideas why this could happen and how to avoid it?
On my way finding a solution, I tried to modify the html-snippets used to build the website - this worked for some parts, but changing other parts killed the whole site. My idea was to change all links manually (if it was working, i would automate this with a little script). Do anybody know the part/script of eprints which combines the html snippets? I hope that reading this script might help me to modify my repo.
Thany you again for your help,
best regards

Hey,
thank you very much for your answers.
I tried to configure a test repository like you suggested.
I tried to configure /cfg.d/10_core.pl<http://10_core.pl> manually and added a ServerAlias at
the apache config files. This didn't work, so i used epadmin config-core to
add a second url. I tried to use a second virtual host in the apache config
instead of ServerAlias, too. But my problem still remains: if i access the
repo using the new domain, i reach it, but it is equivalent to a redirect.
All links are hardlinks, if i use one of them, i get redirected to the old
domain. It seems that changing 10_core.pl<http://10_core.pl> does not affect my repo in any
way. Reloading or regenerating with epadmin does not help.
So i tried to set up a new test repo with 'epadmin create' and defined a
second url in this process, setting redirecting to 'no'. The result still
remains the same - i can access it with both domains, but all links point
to the main domain.
Do you have any ideas of what I could have done wrong?
Using apaches mod_substitute is still an option, but I think that there
should be a better solution.
Thank you very much,
best regards

Did you run all the generate_xxxx scripts having changed 10_core?

(Remember that EPrints works by pre-creating snippits of web pages,
which it then inserts into the templates - it's why you need to
re-generate all the "browse" pages periodically: because the ingest
process doesn't always get it right....)#

.... and you restarted the server, having changed the config, yes?
