Error with WebPart since an alternative url is being used to access the site

Jun 5, 2009 at 1:57 AM
We have just been receiving the following error and  was wondering what would be causing this to happen.

This WebPart has been working fine for a couple of weeks, but is now display the following error.
The Web application at could not be found. Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL mapping to the intended application.
We have just recently created an alternative url to access the SharePoint site, but the old url still exists and can be still be used to access the SharePoint site.
Has anyone got any idea's how to fix this issue?

Hi Mel

Is there a solution for the alternative URL trouble? I have the same Issue?

Simply set an alternate full qualified URL. It does not work!!

Do you have a work around?
