How t change localhost url to something different?
I have a a very annoying problem and require help from you please.
I have a dedicated server running a website software, this software require to be unlocked via the URL of my site, for example: http://www.mysite.com
Now the problem is that I wish to work locally with this software and not live9too risky) but the software stays in Demo mode because the local host URL is something like: http://localhost:7001/home.html
I contacted the software maker and they cannot give me a second unlock key for my local server as this software is not supported anymore, we are really stuck because each time we test something on local,it is limited to 10 input and the things do not work well when we upload to live.
You will probably need to refresh your internet connection after making any changes. Go to "Control Panel" -> "Network Connections", right click on your active connection and choose "Repair". This will dump all of your DNS cache so the changes are picked up.
Please note that this will not affect the port number you are connecting to! If that part of the URL is still giving you problems, you may have to change your local web service to run on port 80 for testing.
