CaddyInfo Cadillac Forum Server Shift

Confusingly, the CaddyInfo Forum has shifted from where it was before, but it is in the same place.

To put it another way, it is at the same address, but the address has moved on the name servers (DNS) to a new address.  So until your local DNS server updates you may have difficulty finding the forum!  As it turned out mine changed right away, and if you CAN click right over to the caddyinfo forum then all this is old news for you.

In the mean time, you can use this trick to add the correct forum address to your local hosts file:

To override the DNS on your PC, and assuming you use Windows 7, you need to open this file for editing:

/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts (there’s no file extension, it’s just ‘hosts’)

then add these two lines to the bottom of the file:

50.28.75.70 caddyinfo.ipbhost.com
50.28.75.70 www.caddyinfo.ipbhost.com

and save it. Make sure whatever editor you use doesn’t append a file extension like .txt or .rtf and saves it as just ‘hosts’. Reboot your PC, and you should get to the site right away. Remove those two lines in a few days.

Then after your DNS servers DO update you’ll want to get rid of these lines just to tidy up.

Feel free to comment here if you need assistance or have better info on how people can get to the forum.
