View website with just IP


#1

Tried to search but only relevant returns where what was posted a few hours ago, and the reponses in that thread weren’t very helpful.

What is the ip address so we can check our site before dns propogation… not mirroring the existing site… just checking what’s on the dreamhost server. Would like to get the databases and structure up before dns switch.

Thanks.

You’ll have to set up a mirrored domain of dreamhosters.com to accomplish this. That’s just the way it at DH. One of the posts you found before should help you set up the mirroed domain, if you need it.

that’s the step where you set up a mirrored domain on dreamhosters.com? ie xedge.dreamhosters.com that mirrors the xedge.net site?

yes, it will mirror your domain from Dreamhost. It’s a little odd, but it’s not just a mirror of xedge.net, but a mirror of your site on dreamhost.

haha ya it’s odd but it works. Thanks to the user comments in the knowledge base article. You guys make no distinction between dreamhost.com and dreamhosters.com in the initial explanation.
