WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I just created a new application and added it to an existing website under the url /test under subdomain www.mydomain.com

However, when I visit the www.mydomain.com/test I get 404s.

I already have other apps running under / and /otherapps.

Is this a process that is supposed to take time? do I have to wait for the webfaction servers to reload their configs or something?

Thanks.

If DNS changes have fully propagated, it shouldn't take longer than 5 or 10 minutes for new applications to appear. If you are having problems, try clearing your browsing data and flushing your DNS cache. We have information here:

http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/domains.html#a-domain-still-resolves-to-a-previous-host

If that doesn't fix the problem, it may indicate that a problem exists on the server. If it takes longer than normal, please open a support ticket and we can check the server for possible problems.

Thanks for your answer. It is not a dns problem, the domain hasn't changed and my other apps are still accessible (on that same domain, just different url). I tried flushing either way to now avail. Tried to access it from a different computer on a different network with a different ISP, still 404.

My apps seem to be in place in my webapps directory, so I'm guessing there is a problem in the apache/nginix forwarding.

I will open a support ticket.
