The Posterous Problem





Update: part of this is cut off. Under the Add IP address (A Record) below I have the register.com address on the left and the posterous IP address on the right and it shows that when I log into register.com

I registered a domain name with register.com for my posterous and followed the instructions but am still getting this error:


Oops. We ran into 1 problem!

Try to fix these issues and try again.

  • Virtual host is not currently pointing to the right place. We found:
    • A RECORD: XXX.XX.XXX.XXX

    Please set your DNS servers to the correct address (A record to 'XX.XXX.XXX.XX') and try again.

    I have it set correctly on register.com, I think:

    ADD IP ADDRESSES (A RECORD)

    Add more IP addresses by filling in the fields below. Please click Continue when finished. 

    .mssoulpower.com   points to    Delete
    .mssoulpower.com   points to    
    .mssoulpower.com   points to    

    What else do I need to do?

    Hello, it can take an hour for your a record to be deleted and your new one to work. It depends on the TTL set by register.com After your new A record has been added then you go to manage in Posterous to add your new url. I hope this helps.

    I’m be on IM as WayneSutton12 for a few if you want to chat.

    Hi guysLet me know how I can help. I looked at the DNS and it looks like it still points to someplace else:Non-authoritative answer:Name:    http://www.mssoulpower.comAddress: 208.67.219.132My im is garryktan, garrytan on Gtalk.-Garry-cofounder, posterous.com

    Garry, thanks so mu I guess I need to know, which IP address goes in which box to get this right. The 208 address is from register.com I had the 208 pointing to the Posterous IP address listed in the instructions on Posterous. I have zero technical skills (maybe that’s the problem). So the question is does your IP go on the right and their’s on the left, vice versa or did I miss a step?

    You need to create an A record from:mssoulpower.comto 67.207.139.81You can follow up with me at garry@posterous.com, and if you feel comfortable sharing your pw we’d be happy to set it up for you too.

    Garry, lawdamercy, I thought that’s what I did. I’m going to email you this is clearly beyond my knowledge base 😉
