I am trying to set up a production server ahead of the actual dns switch. I have edited my hosts file on my macbook pro 10.8.2.
I can pull up the index page but none of the style sheets are pulled in and if I click on a link it redirects to the main site. This is the same behavior on safari and FF
The funny thing is, it works fine in IE. Is the behavior of a hosts file on on a mac different than from a windows hosts file? Apparently so. Has anyone seen this behavior before and know how to work around it? thanks
