  • It is hard to see how ArcGIS for Desktop which you have as a tag comes into this Question. Also, you seem to be asking more than one question so I think you should edit it to focus on whichever one is the most important to you.

  • Both question has same issue and same problem.when i display layer as open layer preview. i found that the source path is my hosting server url.that is(vmx15978.hosting24.com.au).the path should be (links-map.com) May 5, 2014 at 12:09
  • This looks like a DNS or proxy issue, not a GeoServer issue. How are you routing your site name to the host?

  • My site name is links-map.com and Geoserver path is links-map.com/geoserver.But when i click on login button of geoserver it redirect to my hosting server url vmx15978.hosting24.com.au:8080/geoserver so where can i set Proxy or DNS setting to fix this May 5, 2014 at 13:30
  • Looks like your DNS authority is sedoparking.com. If you do not already have a handle on the DNS, then that complicates things quite a bit. Proxy is something you will have to install and configure on your server. See if you can obtain your DNS configuration.

To fix this, go to the Global Settings page in the GeoServer configuration UI. There you enter http://links-map.com/geoserver/ in the "Proxy Base URL" field.

    Are there more posibilities what can cause this Problem? I am experiencing the same behaviour (Geoserver Admin Interface is pointing to an "old" URL while Proxy Base URL is set correctly). Where does the Admin UI get this URL from? Mar 9, 2016 at 9:49
