I had no trouble moving SS to my demo server. Everything worked fine. I just moved it to the real server and switched the DNS to this server. This has resulted in two problems.
1. /~hostingusername/ is being inserted into all of my links. When I installed SS I did use their preview url http://previewurl.com/~hostingusername/install.php ...The front end seemingly looks fine except /~hostingusername/ is being inserted into my url. I checked the database, I checked the config files and I checked the htaccess file and am not finding any instance of /~hostingusername/ ...The new hosting is with Arvixe. Two reps have told me this will go away when propagation is complete. One rep said its not necessarily related.
2. I can't login to the admin or at least not easily. I checked the remember me box, got to a "sign in as a different user" screen, I went back to the login screen again, and then went to the admin url and was able to see everything. I talked to my host and they confirmed that the php session data folder was writeable.
Any suggestions on either of these problems would be great.
