called pages redirected to homepage

brisraybrisray Member Posts: 60
I run Apache 1.3 on Windows 2000 Pro. Up until earlier today everything was running smoothly. However now if someone tries to go to a page on the site they are redirected to the homepage. For example, people trying to get to http://brisray.com/web/webind.htm get sent to http://4.33.40.118/

Has anyone any idea where I can start to look for a solution?

Some background ...

brisray.com is a domain registered at GoDaddy - http://www.godaddy.com

4.33.40.118 is the IP address of the PC - although I use GoGaddy's redirect service I don't bother with masking so it's normal for people to see the IP address.

I use DSL, the IP address changes every so often but not so often as to make the home server unworkable.

I've rebooted the PC several times hoping the problem would sort itself out (it usually doesn't for anything but it's always worth a go).

I haven't made any changes to the machine for months apart from adding HTML files - the last time was last night.

    Is this more of a DNS related problem? ...

    Once on the site, you can go to any page, either through the menus or retyping the page you want.

    When a visitor types http://brisray.com/web/webind.htm they get taken to http://4.33.40.118/ but if they type http://4.33.40.118/web/webind.htm they get taken to the proper page.

    It sounds to me like your URL forwarding service isn't actually passing the /web/webind.htm bit on with the request. You may be able to configure it to do so, if not you may just want to set up proper DNS, e.g. create A records for your domain and point it at the IP.
