Wordpress comment integration question.

I am in the process of moving from dreamhost to hostgator for my hosting and have run into a few little issues here and there that I thought I’d run by folks here for an opinion. I’ll post the details on order in which things occurred below:

• I switched to hostgator from dreamhost by dropping in the old sites directories and modifying the config files.

o http://community.koboldenterprise.com/categories/blog

• Testing everything worked aside from the comments.

• I did some research and found out I needed the cURL activated by my host which I had done.

• After it was active I went back in and the site could still not be validated but after saving it the comment box shows back up and just says page cannot be found.

o http://www.koboldenterprise.com/microlite20-alternate-skill-and-base-attack-bonus-system/#/dashboard/home/filenotfound

• I installed the plugin on a blank wordpress install that I test plugins and themes on to see if it might just be the blog that is the issue. The test site was able to successfully validate the forum, but the same page not found error arrived.

o http://www.hashtagjustice.com/?p=1#/dashboard/home/filenotfound

My assumption is that in part the error must be related to the blog (because the test site could validate) but that ultimately the bulk of the issue is on the forums end. If anyone has any thoughts on this I’d really appreciate some opinions because I’m kinda stumped at this point.

    I don't use the comment system but ...

    maybe a faulty .htaccess file.

    the "home" after dashboard looks odd here - http://www.hashtagjustice.com/?p=1#/dashboard/home/filenotfound

    as does the dashboard appearing in http://www.koboldenterprise.com/microlite20-alternate-skill-and-base-attack-bonus-system/#/dashboard/home/filenotfound

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Well the .htaccess file was not modified from the old installation and I still have it in the root of the subdomain so I would assume I don't need to modify it.

    maybe, maybe not. depends. does your forum exist in

    /dashboard/home/

    take a look in your logs for your webserver.

    Well when I log directly into my cpanel I end up with /home/username the full path to the forum is /home/sdg/public_html/community.koboldenterprise.com.

    I have tried:

    • /home/sdg/public_html/community.koboldenterprise.com
    • /public_html/community.koboldenterprise.com

    I also attempted to add dashboard before both but that didn't work either. I'll have to shoot an email to hostgator to get some more clarifications from them. I appreciate the help, if there is anything else you think might be the problem I'd appreciate your thoughts.

    If I can get this fixed through some clarification with the host I'll post the details on what was wrong and how it got fixed.

    Ok so the issue was resolved pretty quick. I got in touch with hostgator and they resolved the issue in less than 5 minutes. For anyone who has this issue in the future just get in touch with your hostgator chat support and let them know the following:

    "The plugin listed here http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/vanilla-forums/ requires curl to be active on the following domains (your domains) and to have the plugin whitelisted".

    Within a few minutes they'll have you rocking.

    How do you connect Wordpress in another domain? Can you explain it, please?
