SERVER update

Recommended Posts

We updated to a new server; my DNS updated in real time; if yours has not here is more info -- which I suppose you can't read but here it is:

The move is complete, and your site is back online on the new server.

It will be a short period of time before that change propagates to everyone, but if you need immediate access you can override the DNS in your hosts file.

To override the DNS on your PC, and assuming you use Windows 7, you need to open this file for editing:

/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts (there's no file extension, it's just 'hosts')

then add these two lines to the bottom of the file: caddyinfo.ipbhost.com www.caddyinfo.ipbhost.com

and save it. Make sure whatever editor you use doesn't append a file extension like .txt or .rtf and saves it as just 'hosts'. Reboot your PC, and you should get to the site right away. Remove those two lines in a few days.
