Temporary test domain name or way to achieve this
I created a multi install with a single website and was able to do that because there was a working IP address.
Now I have 1 site there however I can’t use the ip address (or can I) to go to the NEW folder for the new site to test.
In previous hosting scenarios I was able to turn on what was called a testing url which gave access to a folder. I tried this in my sites-available block..
rewrite ^caribbean-diving.com/newsite$ var/www/newsite.com redirect;
This didn’t work as the old site just 404’d
I have also tried to edit the /sites-available/digitalocean file which as I understand is the default from my one click install of LEMP. So I thought this could be the file the dedicated IP address could root through first…so I pointed the root directive to my new sites folder of that but it didn’t do anything and I still get to my initial website.
How to achieve this?
