I'm struggling with a new site on Business Catalyst. I already manage a few through the system but this one is having problems. I warn you, I find the business catalyst admin system very confusing and not that well designed... I think I might have mucked up the DNS settings this time when launching.
From memory I clicked External DNS, (which I now know is not how my other sites are done) but I can't log in to see...
I have changed the nameservers and the DNS A values to point to the right IP address, but now every time I try and log into Business Catalyst admin panel, I get redirected to the website instead, which is a holding page for the domain provider...
You set up one or the other, not both name servers and A Records. A Record change is if you want to point Web Traffic only to a site like BC. Name servers are for all traffic - this would be if you were using BC for emails etc.
This though would not effect admin redirecting to website unless your not loging in correctly or you set up a domain level redirect under that URL.
what happens when you go to .... http://YOURSITEPREFIXHERE.businesscatalyst.com/admin ? (If you have your own partner domain instead of businesscatalyst use that)
You're a star, that got it!
