Change logged-in user

2012-09-26, 14:56


I'm using pagekite on the same computer where it exists already, but there is another one user. I'm wondering how can I start my kite up & running. When I try to start with pagekite it says:

*** Kite creation failed!

*** Sorry, that domain is unavailable.

If you registered it already, perhaps you need to log on with a different e-mail address?

And I'm wondering how to change this.

I'm running pagekite v0.5.3.a on CentOS as a root, but have to use another pagekite as a root also.

Thank you, Ivan

    People are not expected to use multiple accounts, even if they want to fly kites with a few different names. In fact, it is against our terms of service to create multiple accounts, because that is usually the first thing people try when their trial runs out and they want to avoid paying us money... :-)

    If you want to have multiple kites configured, you can add new ones to your configuration like so:

    $ --add 80

    $ --add 8080

    Then you can choose which one you fly, by naming it on the command line:


    For more examples, try runnin this: --help |less

    Note that all users can create unlimited "subdomains", and users who have paid also get the option of creating more short names. So I don't think there is any reason to create multiple accounts, but please explain your situation in more detail if I am overlooking something. :-)

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you for your reply,

    I've solved problem by creating a group and adding user into it. Now we can share our available kites!

    Great work with Pagekite.
