sorry for the late reply but I was working and my profession has nothing to do with IT, so I have to find some time off work to try to address possible problems.
Nope, you are the first one!
That's true! They state this on the front "One-Click Installs" page.
That's what XODA is supposed to do.
Anyway, let's talk about your problem.
Double or single slash ("/") is considered as the same thing under Linux/UNIX, so no wonder that there is no change in the behavior.
I don't know why this happens.
The message "The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded" is not part of XODA and I don't have any idea why it comes at all. Can you write down the URL which is tried to be loaded?
Is this the URL? This is of course not a valid URL!
Here are some suggestions:
[*]Could you please make sure that you don't have a '.httaccess' file where XODA was just installed? Or just try to delete the one there and try again.
[*]Try to uninstall XODA (over the One-Click Installs menu) and then reinstall it.
[*]Try to install it in a different directory (like http://www.subdomain.mysite.com/xoda/).
I developed XODA entirely on DreamHost and never had a problem. I have no other report about anything even loosely related to the problem you describe. It must be something small and totally avoidable.
Please try the suggested solutions and drop me a message to let me know, how it behaves!
Thank you so much for testing XODA! I hope you would be able soon to enjoy it!
