Launcing a new website for a client,so starting at 8 am I am waiting for the nameserver changes to resolve so i can then replace the ip settings in wordpress with the actual url, reset the perma links, and a bit of .htaccess trickery so I can serve the site out of the dev directory - no big whoop done it lots of times. takes 30 min tops including checking all links and files/images.
So the change kicks in WOOO i log in to the WP admin and start making changes - then get a 404 i browse back to the root and BAM Old site is being served.
Clear cache, reload - old site.
Basically the fucking thing ping-ponged back and forth all damn day between hosts until finally I remember MY STUPID ISP DOES NOT UPDATE ITS DNS TABLES OFTEN ENOUGH!!!!! I set up open DNS and poof ping-ponging is over.
Hell of a way to spend a Saturday I wasted time farting around in borderlands but I hated being stuck in the damn house all day.
Also love when people setup TTLs of like 38 days.
