I'm in the middle of setting up a new server. A few days ago, I used Express Transfer to copy most of the accounts on the old server to the new (so the DNS for these accounts were updated), but the main account that's used as a nameserver was not transferred.

I discovered today that when someone goes to:

http://user.server.com/~account

they are being redirected to:

http://user.server.com/cgi-sys/movingpage.cgi

It doesn't matter which account they use; they're all being redirected. Going to http://user.server.com, though (without the ~account) works as expected.

This is a big problem for me because I use a shared security certificate, and need this link to work for payments. I'm planning to change it at the end of the month, but definitely not right now!

I don't see that the DNS for server.com has been changed, and neither has httpd.conf.

What do I need to update in order to set this back?
