I installed my Civicrm with the IP address of the server which turns out to be a "Bad Idea" (TM). Now when trying to enter various posts, such as membership details or new events I keep getting "logged out" (clicking save redirects to a login page for the IP-address).

I tried changing BASEURL in the civicrm.settings.php file, then clear all caches - but I still get this behaviour. Which is extremely annoying. How do I fix this?

  • Which CMS are you using? (Drupal, WordPress, Joomla!) Can you access the CMS correctly?

  • I'm using Joomla, and yes everything else seems to be working as supposed.

Go to Administer > System Settings > Directories and Administer > System Settings > Resource URLs and make sure those show the new values. Depending on your CMS, you may need to make changes to its configuration as well.

  • Hmm, in Resource URLs I get CiviCRM Resource URL = [civicrm.root]/ While Directories only return a misrendered bare html page ...

  • To be more specific, this is the content of Directories You may configure these upload directories using absolute paths or path variables. Path Variables [cms.root]

  • If you click the help icon on those pages it will show the values of those variables for your system.
