I have a namebased website that I already transfered to another webhost. The problem is that, I want to run/execute a php file in the old site to convert my phpbb database. How can I do that since the DNS already resolving to the new site? Since it's IP based, I can't access using IP address or can I?

yup, tried searching but can't find solution.

The method you gave doesn't work either. It will work only on the IP where DNS already resolving but not the one where DNS doesn't resolve.

If the IP URL is not working then there is some other issue , accessing directly through IP has nothing to do with DNS propagation or where the domain is pointing , if the account is on server with IP 1.2.3.4 then http://1.2.3.4/~user/ must work.

hmm..I have checked userdir_mod and it is disabled. Could it be due to the reverse DNS not set up correctly?
