So I stopped cloaking a domain


#1

Where did all the files associated with the cloaked domain go?


#2

You realise cloaking just displays the contents of another web site in a frame? So if you had a site abc.com and made it a cloak of xyz.com so the actual files are on wherever xyz.com is hosted…


#3

I am aware of that. But it turns out abc.com already had files on it xyz.com did not, and now that I don’t want to cloak the domain anymore, it would seem as if everything previously on abc.com got wiped out.


#4

Is it possible that you set the domain to a different FTP user or to a different path than it was using before? We don’t get rid of anything automatically like that, so chances are that it’s just somewhere different from where you’re looking.


#5

Right now I’m getting this error:

Domain Cloaking Error
We’re sorry, we had a problem with our web panel when you set up cloaking for your domain spectraperu.org!
Please go to the DreamHost Web Panel’s Domains > Manage Domains area and click the [Edit] link next to spectraperu.org to re-configure cloaking.

Error: no domain spectraperu.org – if you recently set this up, please wait up to one hour.[/quote]

It’s been more than an hour now and if I try to access the WebFTP service I get the following message:

All I did was click “Remove cloaking” so I’m not sure how I could have messed with the FTP config. In any case, how do I get it back to what it was?
