Confirm that your machine points to an edge server

Pointing you machine to an edge server requires changing the local host file to point to the IP of an edge server. Perform this procedure to verify that you modified the hosts file correctly and that your website works properly.

How to

  1. Clear your browser’s cache.
  2. Go to the page that you want to test.
  3. In the HTTP analyzer of your browser, verify that the website loads as expected and that the X-Cache entry is present in the return headers.
