Running domain under different user. How long before it takes effect?


I changed one of my domain to run under newuser instead of mainuser. How long before this takes effect? It’s been 15 minutes and the domain still points to mainuser’s directory.

When I made the change under Manage Domains) I ticked the option to move all the files to newuser’s directory. I have verified that the files have indeed been copied to newuser’s directory.

I’ve even renamed the original root directory in mainuser but that doesn’t seem to help. Now the domain returns a 404 (obviously because it’s trying to retrieve the website from mainuser’s directory)


in my experience, just a few minutes. Try ‘unhosting’ it in the panel then set up hosting again pointing at the new user.


Thanks, bobocat. That seemed to work :slight_smile:
