Custom domain for adadevelopersacademy
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I would like to have our custom domain,, setup with our Miraheze wiki (adadevelopersacademy), using LetsEncrypt for SSL certificate issuance.

Since we're transferring this wiki from another host which is still running, I'd like to avoid downtime as much as possible. According to the instructions on Meta, we should change the DNS authoritative servers for that domain to Miraheze's name servers.

Could someone at Miraheze create the correct DNS records on your name servers and then let me know so that I can update the authoritative servers with our registrar after that has happened?

@Hamled The DNS records have been created.

Please note that after you point the NS, I will also have to generate the certificate and set it it up before you can use your custom domain.

@Reception123 Great, thanks! The name servers for our domain have been updated.

Issues with redirecting.

@John This is redirecting to Meta for some reason. I definitely made the mw-config changes after. I tried reloading NGINX, checked config but I can't figure out what is going wrong. (revi confirms that it also redirects to Meta for him)

It seems to be working when you login, or perform an action like that, but when I try to go directly to it doesn't work.

Without logs all I can suggest is:
a) cache
b) not deployed correctly?

It’s woring for me.

Confirm it works now. Likely a cache issue, though at the time clearing my cache did not fix this error.

Clearing yours wouldn’t, you’d have to clear cp*
