Lasso 8.1 - ServerAdmin - add site - visit url

detlef.hebbel
Hello List.

I am almost ready to upgrade from 7.1.3 to 8.1. I am testing the 'add site'
stuff in ServerAdmin but cannot get to the new SiteAdmin:

I have already a 'DefaultSite#1' as well as a 'TestSite#2'.

After adding a new 'NewSite#3', the 'visit url' link of the newly added site
brings me back to the the SiteAdmin of 'TestSite#2'.

The 'Visit Url" links for site #1 and #2 both go to:
http://MyDomain:16080/SiteAdmin.LassoApp

For #3 goes to:
http://localhost/SiteAdmin.LassoApp

Yes, I have read:
http://www.listsearch.com/lassotalk.lasso?tab1=search&tab2=detail&skip=1&uid
=153342

But it does not help me with a positive result.

When I change the "Host Name" in the "Site Crieria", there is no change in
the links.

Any idea what is wrong?

Cheers

Detlef

IIRC, the "visit url" links either work or they don't - they're provided "as-is."  If they don't work, you have to manually visit
the site admin and perhaps bookmark it.

They're generated heuristically, which is to say as a guess.  If the guess is incorrect then you need to create a visit URL manually.  Once you visit SiteAdmin on a site the actual URL you used will be recorded and used for the visit link from then on.

If you're creating a site for a domain "www.example.com" then you just need to visit http://www.example.com/SiteAdmin.LassoApp.  If you're creating a site for a folder "myfolder" then visit the URL http://www.example.com/myfolder/SiteAdmin.LassoApp.  Basically, visit the home page of the site and change the file name to SiteAdmin.LassoApp.

I also had a hard time with grasping this when I first started with  
LP8. One mistake I made that resulted in two site admin pages always  
being the Default SiteAdmin page was in the defining of the Host Root  
in ServerAdmin.
I may not be total correct here but if you do not enter the domain/
path ending with the /% weird things can happen!
I'm serving multiple vhosts in one Site so may entries look like this:
Host Name                    Host Root

vhost1.mydomain.com         /%
vhost2.mydomain.com         /%
vhost3.mydomain.com         /%

Hope that helps.

Is this new in 8.1 - that it will record whatever URL you use to  
visit the SiteAdmin page? I have not upgraded from 8.0.5 yet so can't  
test.
Currently the links do not handle https very well, instead of using  
https:// it uses http://.....:443/SiteAdmin.lassoapp - which doesn't  
work in our environment.
Not a big deal to be sure as I now know how to get to the page I  
need, but would be nice to have it work correctly.

Recording the actual URL is not new in 8.1, but was introduced in one of the other updates.  However, 8.1 should now use an "https://" link if the port is 443.
