DNS. Bah!

All the remaining issues seem to be DNS-related and are driving me slightly crazy.

For one thing, we've moved from a single centralised mu.nu domain where everything was controlled with a simple text file, to a multispliferous system that is controlled through CPanel.

In theory, this is good, because now you have control over your own domains. In practice, it is very very fiddly.

For example, if I set up Jim's account as snoozebuttondreams.mu.nu and park snoozebuttondreams.com on top of it, the server doesn't know it should be handling DNS for snoozebuttondreams.com. On the other hand, if I set up the account as snoozebuttondreams.com, I can't park snoozebuttondreams.mu.nu on top because CPanel thinks it's owned by another user. I don't know who, because it doesn't tell me, but I think it's because I also have an account for the mu.nu domain itself. I don't think CPanel likes that much.

Oh, and even though I set up the DNS in advance to refresh after 20 minutes, so that we wouldn't have to wait hours for it to propagate, it's still taking hours to propagate. Pfft.
