    Connect to two website on same server

    clivewalker
      My client has two websites with different domain names on the same server. We set-up one Contribute connection but the next connection set-up is refused with "You already have a connection to this server". Despite this message, Contribute cannot edit the second site. Contribute cannot apparently set-up two connections to websites on the same server. Is this possible? Surely Contribute has been used by multiple website owners? Help....

          Do the sites have different root folders on the server, and different logins? I could see it being a problem if they don't. I have connections to 4 web sites on the same server, though I am using the CPS to manage them.

            The two site have different root folders and logins. However, fingers crossed, I have found the answer. I have changed the Admin - Web Server - Web address settings and deleted all alternate web addresses, for example, IP address, servername address. I only kept the actual domain name address. I think Contribute was using the alternate web addresses (which were the same for both sites, of course) to identify the sites - and refusing my connection to the second site. I have tested on my PC but I now need to test on client's machine.

            [If there is another answer, I'd be happy to hear it]
