Use Temp URL to View and Test Your Site

To access the site using temporary URL:
http://ipnumber/~cpanelusername/

---

*Please note that this is a complex procedure and we do not recommend it.
Use at your own risk!

If you want to test and view your site while working on it and before committing the DNS changes to make sure everything is OK.

You will need to make 2 changes in the phpMyAdmin database until you propagate your DNS changes.

In cPanel:
find databases and open phpMyAdmin


you may have multiple databases. select the correct one (refer to the article on how to determine which database is the correct one)

cpanelusername_wp123

wpdz_options

browse


original siteurl:  http://mydomainname.com   (be sure to save this info)
original home:  http://mydomainname.com

*you can double click on the option_name value (ex: siteurl) to in-line edit the parameter


temporarily change setting to: (make sure to change these back after DNS changes)
edit siteurl = http://cpanelipnumber/~cpanelusername/mydomainname.com/
edit home = http://cpanelipnumber/~cpanelusername/mydomainname.com/

save
exit
