Hi - Not sure this is the correct place to ask this question. My site us up and working but my host changed their DNS and I have no earthly idea where I tell SS to use the new credentials to ftp files. I can't upload any assets and get an error when I try. It appears this is also affecting form submittals on the server. I did not originally install SS - a developer did this and he has abandoned me. If there is a file I can change to update this please tell me where to locate it. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

As far as I am aware, Silverstripe doesn't use FTP to upload files (at least, I have never used FTP). Could you post the error you get up here?

I can't see why changing the DNS for a server would make a lot of difference to Silverstripe, unlike systems like Wordpress, it is pretty independent of the server it sits on, so the same site can be easily accessed from multiple addresses without any required changes.
