I have a django application set up on a domain and have mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com pointing to it and everything is working fine except when I try to access my admin area www.mydomain.com/admin I get "There is no application mounted at the root of this domain." error, but when I access the admin from http://mydomain.com/admin it works fine, why can I not access www.mydomain.com/admin?

UPDATE

All I had to do was clear my browsers cache. Try that.

The reason is that you've only configured your site to be available at the domain with the 'www.' prefix. The following URLs will all work:

http://mydomain.com/
http://mydomain.com/admin/
http://mydomain.com/anything

But your site is configured to run on 'www.mydomain.com'.

You'll need to re-configure your site in the control panel to use both domains.

In the control panel the subdomains mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com are both selected to run the app. The following urls all work:

http://mydomain.com/ http://mydomain.com/whatever http://mydomain.com/admin http://www.mydomain.com/ http://www.mydomain.com/whatever

all work correctly, the only address that doesn't work as it should is http://www.mydomain.com/admin which shows "There is no application mounted at the root of this domain." where I would expect the admin as every other address under www.mydomain.com works fine.

Ah, that is weird.

I can't find your account. Could you open a support ticket so we can take a closer look?
