Having trouble renaming the URL to SharePoint 2007 site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Recently I have been working to update a SharePoint site which has had its DNS name changed from http://www.mywebsite.com to https://www3.mywebsite.com.  From the Intranet side of the site (http://mywebsite:2345) most of the features work as you would expect (except the ones that require an external user to operate).  Using the Internet side from a different computer, I get all kinds of "file not found" and invalid links when clicking on view/edit list items, particularly in the case where the view and edit forms are both customized for the list in question.  The link takes me to a place that completely omits the form name but still appends the correct request parameters.  Furthermore, some of the code-behind depends on a web.config setting for the application and this parameter can no longer be found, even though I can see the parameter still exists in the web.config.

    I was not in charge of the DNS change but now it has become my responsibility to make this thing work.  Any suggestions, questions or advice would be appreciated

     

    Thanks,

     

    - Matt

  • Hi Matt,

    Do you have the site with server name for this affected site, if yes then in which zone the site resides ?

    Are you able to get all contents of the site when you browse it using server name ?

    Make sure to put the server name site in Default zone under AAM and then delete other mappings.

    Then after from Application Management extend the server name URL to https://www3.mywebsite.com as you have already created a new DNS record and then apply proper SSL certificate to get your site run.

    Please let us know if you have any doubts.
