Did both of those things and it didn't work .. but then worked out it was Firefox being a bit clingy ... cleared its web cache and seems to be all sorted now .. sorry for being such a noob!
We found that Firefox can be especially aggressive about DNS caching. Here is some info that may help:
However, there’s a solution that does not require a restart.
about:configin Firefox’s address bar
- acknowledge the warning that appears next
- find an entry called
network.dnsCacheExpirationand set it’s value to 0
- if there’s no such entry, create a new integer item with the name above and a value of 0
- now go back and change the value to 3600
It looks like that domain is still pointing to our old IP - did you update the A Record to point to our new IP address?
Ouch, you're right...I changed all seven of our sites and left the default @ the old IP...my bad. Changed now, so hopefully it'll be fine by the morning...thanks!
