I am beginning to migrate our company site to Dreamhost. Our site runs on WordPress using a custom template that I have further customized.
I want to get our site tested and working perfectly before we make the switch and change the dns info.
Is there a way I can preview and test the site before the domain name is switched?
I see in my control panel an IP address 126.96.36.199. I tried going to http://188.8.131.52/ but get the “bad_httpd_conf” error.
I see the error’s explanation on the dreamhost wiki, and I’m pretty sure it doesn’t apply to me because I don’t want to switch the domain pointer yet.
If you have a way for me to test my site at this stage I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
