Hi
I installed Silverstripe on a host where they provided me with an interim base URL http://ftp.intron.net.nz/~lowdown.

I have set the site up and had the site dnsname changed so that it is now visible at www.lowdown.org.nz problem is the CMS still sees itself as having the URL http://ftp.intron.net.nz/~lowdown so menu links append ~lowdown to www.lowdown.org.nz so form URLs such as www.lowdown.org.nz/~lowdown/ instead of www.lowdown.org.nz/. Is it possible to changes this base URL?

Thanks

MM

Open your .htaccess file. I would say that your rewrite base is "RewriteBase /~lowdown".

Change this to "RewriteBase /"
