We have updated VPSs and apparently the latest version of PHP(?) does not allow you to use the servers ip /~accountname as a way to view a site that does not yet have a domain name associated to it, eg:
We can view it from our computers by altering the hosts file, adding something like:
126.96.36.199 www.newsite.com.au 188.8.131.52 newsite.com.au
but its not very practical to ask our not-tech-savvy clients to go altering their host files.
Does anyone know of a way we can show our clients these sites using some kind of temporary domain name or similar?
