[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Hi F1ko, what version of Ushahidi are you using?
i already solved it
there is a file called config.php in apllication/config/ which has a variable called config['site_domain']
the old url was still in there, so i got redirected
i know used the current ip adress and it works, but i wonder if there is a way to make it easier? maybe by leaving it empty or something like that?
because every time i change the ip adress from now on i would have to edit the file
btw..i also discovered a "bug"
the $config['site_protocol'] was set to https and therefore the css didnt load
after changing it to http it worked fine
the problem ist:
i didnt yet enable https in my firewall, so why did i still get the content of the site but not the css loaded?
shouldnt the permission been blocked instantly?

this seems to be the old version of Ushahidi (v2) , we haven't worked on that for a few years now. I think I recall it was possible to leave config['site_domain'] empty, but I'm not 100% sure
regarding site_protocol , the app doesn't need this config to serve you the HTML, that's why it works. It would be better if it detected the contradiction and informed you of the misconfiguration... but we just didn't go that far
