Flush DNS on iPhone

IMG_0663.JPGDuring the move of this blog from one hosting partner to another, I had the need for testing the site from my mobile, in this case an IPhone.

But no matter what I did and how long I waited after the DNS record was changed, I still got the old site! Now if it was an laptop running windows I would just have opened up an command prompt and run the following command.

Ipconfig /flushdns

But as you know, there’s no command prompt on an iPhone, so how do we manage to flush the DNS.

I thought that maybe turning the wifi off and on would do the trick, but no still the old site.

There is an option that flushes the DNS and that is so simple I almost laughed when I found it!

Just enable “airplane” mode on your iPhone or ipad and disable it again

Badabing, the new site was shown, instead of the old one, I hope you can use this little trick even though it’s not about sql server og databases.

Have a nice weekend
