Hi there, will try to explain...hoping someone has a clue what is going on.

I have about 5 websites all hosted on same dedi server which I am new to :/

I have noticed in search engine results some weird URL paths that I'm sure are not correct, because they seem to be crossing paths into other websites URLs and combining with mail server addresses, with members profile links mixed in with other websites that they are not members of! Don't know if these are old search engine results from a past error, or new.

I have URLs which should be:

www.mysite1.com
showing in results as:

mail.mysite1.com

I have a URL which should be:

www.website1.com/memberlist.php?page=150
showing as:

mail.website2.com/memberlist.php?page=150

I have a members profile link which is

www.site1.com/26006.htm
when entered in to the "search box" directs to a completely different website mail server kind of address which they are not a member of as...
mail.site2.com/26006.htm

In my adsense account in "Authorised Websites" where I have added the normal URLs I can see also listed, dont know how long been there because I didnt add them...

mail.site1.com
mail.site2.com
mail.site3.com
when clicked ALL directing to site1.com


If anyone could throw ANY light on this confusion...what I should check or do to see if error somewhere. Would be VERY much appreciated.

Look in your config file. This looks like something you did yourself by mistake-- or even on purpose. Except that it's doing something you didn't intend it to do.

Look for a rule that takes everything in the form

^([a-z]+\.)?example\.com(:[0-9]+)?$

and redirects to

www.example.com

If it does the same thing with all domains, then it's either a single rule with a variable part in the middle like

([a-z]+\.com) >> $1 or (example1|example2|example3)\.com >> $1.com

or five identical rules.

While you're checking, see what happens if you request

anyoldgarbage.example.com

because they might be redirecting too. This is A Big Problem.

Thanks for your reply.

The web host has fixed this now as far as I know, sending these mail.site.com addresses to an apache page when viewed. I hope this is all fixed now.

Thanks for the support.
