    Setting up Culture and Hostnames for different environments

    Hi!

    I have developed a site in Umbraco 8 which I have deployed to 2 different environments. I have follow 3 environments that are running on their own website and database

    • Localhost running on IIS on my local PC
    • uat.mysite.dk > external webhotel provider.
    • www.mysite.dk > external webhotel provider.

    The website support Danish and English languages. I have in order to make the website ready for the 3 different environments added hostnames with cultures, however I'm not sure if I have done it correctly, hence I need you guys to take a look and tell me if its correct.

    I have right-clicked Home root and choosen "Culture and Hostnames" and then typed in following values.

    Domain Language

    http://localhost:44385 > da

    http://localhost:44385/da > da

    http://localhost:44385/en-us > en-us

    http://localhost.mysite.dk > da

    http://localhost.mysite.dk/da > da

    http://localhost.mysite.dk/en-us > en-us

    https://uat.mysite.dk > da

    https://uat.mysite.dk/da > da

    https://uat.mysite.dk/en-us > en-us

    https://mysite.dk > da

    https://mysite.dk/da > da

    https://mysite.dk/en-us > en-us

    https://www.mysite.dk > da

    https://www.mysite.dk/da > da

    https://www.mysite.dk/en-us > en-us

    Is above correct? It seems verbose.

    Nevermind the localhost:port-no. entries, I will delete them in the future, now that I have moved the site to IIS (instead of IISExpress)

    You could save 1/2 of those if you write a redirect from the root domain to /da for each site, provided that's how you want it to work.

    Also, are each of the /da /en separate root nodes or are you using a setup like vorto where there are two tabs for each property in the content section?

    Hi Amir Thanks for your reply.

    I only have one Home root, please refer to attached picture.

    drop down menu: English and Danish language

    Almost every page has 2 translations (Danish and English). Danish is the default language of the website. I use Umbraco 8s language facility, where each page can have different language versions, please see attached pictures

    Content page showing language options of current page

    enter image description here

    From above I guess that each of the /da /en are not separate root nodes. So I guess I'm am using a setup like vorto, with two tabs for each property in the content section.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "write a redirect from the root domain to /da". Will this procedure be needed with my current setup?

    I have looked at different threads here in Umbraco forum and noticed that some people have only two rows in the "Domains and Language". These entries can be e.g.

    • /da > Danish
    • /en-us > English (United States)

    This seems much easier than my approach, however I'm not sure what is the correct approach.

    I'm looking forward to hear your suggestions.

    After playing around with "Culture and Hostnames" I think I have figured out how to go along. I will share my experience with others who may encounter same issue.

    The procedure for setting up "Culture and Hostnames" is that for every environment e.g. Localhost, UAT, Production you will only have those hostnames relevant for that specific environment. For example for my localhost I have only 3 entries.

    Domain Language

    http://localhost.mysite.dk Danish

    http://localhost.mysite.dk/da Danish

    http://localhost.mysite.dk/en-us English (United States)

    For my uat environment I have exactly the same 3 entries, however the domain is of course https://uat.mysite.dk

    and at last the same goes for production which is https://www.mysite.dk

    It's necessary to have one domain entry without any language code (da/en-us) since that will function as the default language of the website.

    Above means that when I have deployed my site from localhost to uat and production environments then I will manually have to add the beforementioned entries in each environment.

    Note it is important that entries for all environments are not placed in one environment like localhost like I had done in the beginning as shown in the start of this thread, since it will lead to strange behavior like when you click a link within the localhost environment then you will get redirected to either e.g. UAT or Production environment.

    Hope above makes sense.
