    Hi

    I've installed version 2.0.8 of Corendal Wiki on RedHat 9 with Tomcat 5.5.17 and Java SE RE  1.5.0.08. I had to upgrade MySQL to version 5.

    I've followed the instructions in INSTALL.html

    If I access the wiki via Lynx on the server, it works OK. (I can even authenticate against our AD, which I was a bit suprised about.)

    But if I try to access it from my PC (Windows XP SP1 with IE 6), I get a "Page cannot be displayed error".

    I've accessing it via IP address (eg http://xxx.xxx.xx.xx:8080/wiki/home\) as well as by specifying domain name in my local hosts file (as well as in /etc/hosts on the server).

    One possible clue, is that if I access the wiki via Lynx on the server using the domain name rather than "localhost" and then examine the URL for each page that is displayed, the URL is "locahost:8080" rather than the domain name or IP address.

    What's with that?

    I've edited application.xml as best I can.
                                
    <property name="framework.core.webapp.protocol">
      http
    </property>
    <property name="framework.core.webapp.host">
      [the domain name I specify in my hosts file]
    </property>
    <property name="framework.core.webapp.port">
      8080
    </property>
    <property name="framework.core.webapp.folder">
      /wiki
    </property>
    <property name="framework.core.uploads.maxsize">
      50
    </property>
    <property name="framework.core.smtp.host">
      [domain name of our SMTP server]
    </property>
    <property name="framework.core.emails.domain">
      [our email domain]
    </property>
    <property name="framework.core.cookies.domain">
      [same as above]
    </property>
    <property name="framework.core.windows.controllerip">
      127.0.0.1
    </property>

    Thanks
