So, I modified the IP of a site hosted on my VPS to a dedicated one (after un dedicating another site using the IP).

Now, when I go to the site, I got loads of 404's. I hard reset, and now I get the default webpage?

When I went to cpanel.mydomain.tld, I got my main site, but a hard reset fixed it.

Any idea what is happening? I tried rebuilding the http config.

Hello :)

Please check to see which IP address your domain name resolves to from your computer. Make sure it resolves to the same IP address that is assigned to the account in Web Host Manager. It's possible the DNS cache on your computer has yet to update:

Thank you.

Please also always check in a non-cached proxy to check it is not caching. You could still appear cached even after clearing your DNS cache, since your IP itself could cache the data. A proxy will ensure it isn't that as the cause, since the proxy won't have the same IP or cache as your system.

A few proxy servers are the following:

proxify.net
kproxy.com

Thanks!
