    Thanks for the inputs Greg.

    I was indeed using a url forwarding setup. My domain is forwarded to a dyndns.org url since I do not have a static IP.

    Once I updated the config file to have the dyndns url instead of my own domain name it worked.

    Maybe this could have been better explained somewhere for newbies like me. but I am all set now.

    Thanks

    PS: is there any way to have multiple alternatives (direct url as well as dyndns) both configured?

    Not without a code change. It is done that way deliberately. Otherwise when you have several installations on the same site, e.g.

    tree1.example.com
    tree2.example.com
    etc.

    then a login to one would log in to the others.
