    Default Hostname on url

    Hi,

    I upgraded the open source version of 3.0.1 to 3.1 this morning.

    My hostname is abc. And I got a dns setting that say efg points to the global ip of abc.

    with 3.0.1, I used to be able to put efg.mydomain and the web url will not change even after login.

    After I have upgraded, when I put efg.mydomain, I still see the front page but when I login using my username and password, the url changes from efg.mydomain to abc.mydomain which is unresolvable.

    Is there anything that change on this? How can I solve it?

    Add ?redirect=0 to the URL and it will force Zimbra not to redirect.

    Hi Kelvin,

    But how can I make that a global change? Since my users will be horrified to know that they have to type that everytime.

    Thanks.

    It's not possible to make this global today. If you want it to be seemless to user's then you'll have to rename your host or update DNS so the servername defined in Zimbra is resolvable via DNS. In the future we plan to add more options to control the redirect and it's value from the admin UI.

    Are you using an Apache server with mod_proxy in front of zimbra?
    If so, you can use mod_rewrite to add ?redirect=0 to the URL

    Hi,

    I got a hack from a forum that used to modify the js files and restarting tomcat.

    It is working now.

    I'm sure other forum members with this problem might find it useful if you posted the details.

    That's OK, I don't actually need the 'fix'. I was assuming it was on another forum, obviously my understandg of English has gone awry today.
