15:10 jar286 kcranstn, how is the dns business going?  (I was late getting in to harvard today, PT)
15:10 kcranstn you have time now?
15:10 jar286 yep
15:11 kcranstn need to run to get a pcard so I can renew the SSL cert at the same time
15:11 jar286 although no audio, not in a private space
15:11 kcranstn that’s fine
15:11 jar286 sharing an office with the guy who does this: http://www.antwiki.org/wiki/Welcome_to_AntWiki
15:13 kcranstn ants!
15:16 kcranstn ok, so I want to remove the URL forwarding opentreeoflife.org -> blog.opentreeoflife.org
15:17 jar286 right… although you might try putting the A record in place first, if possible
15:17 jar286 order doesn’t really matter
15:17 jar286 actually it should be the same operation (not looking at the web interface)
15:18 kcranstn got it
15:18 kcranstn ip or ot#?
15:19 kcranstn what is the IP?
15:20 kcranstn hello?
15:27 jar286 oh yeah, here i am
15:27 jar286 for ip, do dig ot21.opentreeoflife.org
15:27 jar286 kcranstn ^
15:27 kcranstn got it
15:27 jar286 sorry, was reading about junior synonyms, got distracted
15:28 kcranstn just got a timeout on namecheap. trying again
15:29 kcranstn wow their site is sloooooow
15:29 jar286 probably better to use an A record for opentreeoflife.org rather than a CNAME
15:29 kcranstn ok
15:30 kcranstn will that keep the URL as opentreeoflife.org?
15:32 jar286 ?
15:33 kcranstn loading…. loading...
15:34 kcranstn ok, A record set to 54.190.220.158
15:34 jar286 also need to change www.
15:34 kcranstn or, in process
15:34 kcranstn both changed
15:35 kcranstn processing… processing….
15:35 jar286 checks out on my end!
15:35 jar286 new site up at http://opentreeoflife.org
15:35 kcranstn ok, so how do we get the URL in the address bar to not be the IP address?
15:37 jar286 oh.  that’s weird.
15:37 jar286 very odd.  dig shows the A record as being correct
15:37 jar286 maybe something funnyy about what apache is doing on the server… I’ll check
15:38 jar286 what’s the TTL for that record?
15:42 kcranstn can’t find that in namecheap UI
15:43 kcranstn I think I also need to change stuff on the wordpress side
15:43 jar286 I don’t think it has anything to do with the apache configuration
15:44 jar286 the server doesn’t know it’s own name.  so the way opentreeoflife.org is handled should be same as the way ot21.opentreeoflife.org gets handled
15:45 jar286 either both should work or both should not work
15:45 jar286 that’s why i think it’s a caching issue
15:46 jar286 but I’ve never seen a browser switch to ip address like that before
15:46 jar286 I don’t think it’s a reverse dns issue, since neither ot21. nor www. has reverse dns set up (I don’t think amazon provides it)
15:47 jar286 it’s not an ssl issue since there’s no ssl on ot21
15:49 jar286 oh, there’s the TTL, in the dig output, it’s 60 minutes
15:49 kcranstn I remember setting this at one point, but can’t find it in the UI
15:50 jar286 so we need to check again around 12:35 pm
15:51 jar286 I can’t think how wordpress might have anything to do with what we’re seeing now… they should be out of the loop
15:52 kcranstn I just rememebr setting stuff on both sides (namecheap and wp) to get opentreeoflife.org -> wordpress
15:53 jar286 yes, it makes sense in that direction, since wordpress needs to know the host name, so it can set up a vhost
15:56 kcranstn http://opentreeoflife.org/
15:56 kcranstn good now
15:57 kcranstn renewing SSL for two years
15:57 jar286 not in safari on my laptop… but if it’s good for you I’ll believe it’s a ttl issue and just wait
15:57 jar286 i can’t believe we have adobe stuff in an ‘open’ project
15:58 jar286 i try to keep my mouth shut about this though
15:59 jar286 hey, I just looked at the http headers… sure enough a GET is doing a 302 redirect to the IP
16:00 jar286 “  Server: Redirector/1.0 “
16:00 jar286 Never seen this before… investigating
16:01 jar286 not doing it any more, but I have the evidence in my shell buffer
16:03 jar286 here’s my theory… ‘dig’ was doing a fresh lookup and getting the right IP, but the browsers and IP were getting stale info…
16:03 jar286 so the request was going to wordpress… which noticed that there was new resolution for the domain name, and returned a 302 to the IP address, trying to be helpful…
16:04 jar286 ok, enough of that
17:25 jar286 joined #opentreeoflife
17:29 kcranstn SSL renewed
17:33 jar286 excellent
17:58 jar286 joined #opentreeoflife
19:23 jar286 we will need to re-fetch and re-install all the ssl cert stuff
