I am running a MacPro with Snow Leopard. Last night I purchased a new Domain name, "sculptmud.com", for the purposes of doing live software procedures so that mistakes I made would not stop my main site or cause a server crash on my domain. I knew going in that the new URL would have to Propagate but was surprised that it took the server down for my main site also. The question I have is why? Not worried about it just don't understand the specifics of my main site being unavailable while the new domain propagated. I want to gain more knowledge and so I am here. Also, the tech gave me some code to enter into the Mac console in case I couldn't get back into my main site. I have never used the console and would like to better understand the do's and don't's of the console. why would I use the console if the machinations are happening on the server side. Clear the cache? Makes sense that the cache may contain some data that could, potentially I suppose, be a part of all this. Having never used the console as it is a very powerful part of the Macs core I din't think twice about coming here to gain some knowledge about these items that I am ignorant of. Should you want to know the code he gave me I can post it here after you let me know you would like to see it. It's somewhere in my emails and I have a lot of them. Glad to find it and post it should it help the context of this post.
