Greetings,

As a temporary solution I''ve added the following rules to the module.xml of the frontend fulcrum :
<rule>
  <match>http://syst-slamanagement</match>
  <to>http://servername/SlaManagement/</to>
</rule>
               
<rule>
  <match>http://syst-configstaging</match>
  <to>http://servername/configstaging/</to>
</rule>
               
<rule>
  <match>http://syst-slamanagement/</match>
  <to>http://servername/SlaManagement/</to>
</rule>
               
<rule>
  <match>http://syst-configstaging/</match>
  <to>http://servername/configstaging/</to>
</rule>


Not very elegant, but it does the trick without messing up anything else ...
Anyone with a better solution ?

Regards,
Tom

Greetings,

I''ve been looking through the frontend fulcrum in order to accomplish the following : "I want http://configstaging to resolve to the application running at  http://configstaging/configstaging/"

It may seem like a silly issue, but my enduser does not like typing, so he wants the application running on http://servername/applicationname/ to be reachable as http://applicationname. A DNS alias is quickly made so that servername and applicationname are equal, but how do I do the mapping ... without messing up all the internal http resolving and redirecting ?

Anyone done this (and willing to share the solution) ?

Regards,
Tom
