Test the configuration on Staging

Test your site just as you would if you were testing on the origin server.

Note: When developing tests, don't use edge hostnames to request content. Use edge hostnames only to resolve your content to the edge network.

How to

  1. Check your site's key functionality, such as logging in, using the shopping cart, and so on.
  2. Once you're satisfied that your site works, remove the new entry from your hosts file and save it.
  3. On Mac 10.6 and later, flush your DNS cache again with the dscacheutil -flushcache command.

If the testing is successful, you can go live with both the Edge certificate and the associated Property Manager property by pushing them to the Akamai production network.
