A way to test site before going live
I was wondering if there was a way to test a site before adding the DNS records? I tried adding a new site, but didn't check the Create DNS records box. I then added the admin user, and tried to get to the default index page using my local IP address in browser, but I can't figure out the right way to address it, if there is one. I don't want to do the trick where you edit the host file on my Windows computer because the same URL is my current live site. That would start to get confusing.
The reason for all this is I'm moving from a current server that's live, to a new one here. I want to set up the site on the new server, but I need to test all the functions before I "go live" again.
