[quote]I set up a dreamhosters sub domain for testing and installed a few PHP/MySQL scripts. Some of these scripts let me pull and embed items form them. I noticed that they all read http://dreamhosters.MYDOMAIN.com. Example, one of my scripts pulls a XML path so I can embed in a Flash document. It currently reads the path as:
Will this change once i switch the DNS over? Or will I have to reinstall all my scripts?[/quote]
That depends on the scripts.
The web server keeps track of the hostname used in the request. For example, when browsing to http://example.com/dir/script.php, the browser says it wants ‘Host: example.com’, and the web server sets the HTTP_HOST variable to ‘example.com’, and then executes script.php - but from there whether or not script.php uses HTTP_HOST is up to the script developers. You might want to check with any support channels for those scripts.
