one map api, multiple domains

Thread began 12/13/2009 3:42 pm by florianmagener266546 | Last modified 12/25/2009 6:25 pm by joe396415 | 3303 views | 4 replies |

one map api, multiple domains

Hi,
is it possible to have one google map api for various domain names that are directed to one domain or to embed the different google map api's ( for each domain name) in the same page under one domain?
At present if I type in a browser one domain name I get the error that it is the wrong api for that domain as it is being redirected to a different domain.

Please advise?

If you want to use the same map over again for different domains, you will have to get a different api key for each of the domains you are using it for.

If you are uploading the same pages to different domains, you will have to change the api key accordingly. On the page you have the map applied, find the map script that looks similar to this:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=ABQIAAAAvZMU4-DFRYtw1UlTj_zc6hT2yXp_ZAY8_ufC3CFXhHIE1NvwkxQcT1h-VA8wQL5JBdsM5JWeJpukvw">/*wagmp*/</script>

The key= portion stores the api key that is used. Replace that with the correct api key for each domain.

Hi Jimmy,

I don't think that is what the original poster meant. I am having the same issue as the original poster:

I have two domain names for example mysite.com and mysite.net both bring up the same website but the google map will only work for one of them.

Is there a work around this?

Thanks,
Brad

you can find the currant servers domain name using the HTTP_HOST server variable:

php:
<?php echo((isset($_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]))?$_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]:""?>




Create a switch statement to select which key should be used based on that variable:

php:
<?php

switch ($_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]) {
  case 
"www.mydomain.com"$key "key1"; break;
  case 
"www.otherdomain.com"$key "key2"; break;
  case 
"www.someotherdomain.com"$key "key2"; break;
  default: 
$key "default key"; break;  
}
?>





then change the script tag that connects to the google api to use the new $key variable:

php:
<script type="text/javascript"  src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=<?php echo $key?>">/*wagmp*/</script>
