Cloaking isn't working

I didn’t want to hassle the dreamhost support crew on this as I thought someone on the forums might have experience with this (I used to work in tech support…).

Hi Seth,

It might be that the script hasn’t taken effect yet, or maybe glitched out during processing if you’ve already waited for awhile already.

Thanks for the reply. It’s been more than 24 hours since I made the setting. I also came back and altered the setting and resubmitted it hoping that might re-trigger some action.

Guess I’ll need to file a ticket.

How about making it a Redirect for now and see if that sticks. Then try to make it cloak. Maybe that’ll wake it up.
