    Server IP address

    Basically I have asked my web provider to move me to one of their other servers. The move was done successfully and now my site has a new IP adress. Only problem is when I type my address, I'm still getting my old IP. There havent been any members on my old IP today. I checked http://New-IP/site and there are members on my site posting so obviously the new IP has been propogated. Basically everyone else is connecting straight to the new IP except me. I have cleared my cache, flush dns and still I am connecting to the old IP.
    Anyway that I can connect to the new IP?

    You can try clearing out your DNS cache, go into DNS and type ipconfig /flushdns, or try rebooting.

    If it's cached at your ISP, you can either change DNS servers (you can use opendns.com) or wait it out.

    open up a command line and type:

    nslookup you-domain.ext

    and if it points to your old ip do the following:

    1) reboot your internet router if you have one.
    2) reboot your computer

    if that doesn't fix it then all you can do is wait....

    I did that and its showing the new IP. But whenever I type the address on my browser, its still pointing to the old IP.

    If you're the only one still visiting the old server, check your hosts file. Perhaps you have an entry for your site with the old IP address.

    Or if you are just waiting on propagation you can add an entry there to get you to the new server immediately (just don't forget to remove it within a day or two).

    aha! clear out your browser cache, or use another browser.

    It would be http://YOURIP.com/~USERNAME. Make sure that all of your DNS records are correct also try viewing it from a proxy.
