Working with temporary URL on cPanel

Our Shared hosting server is running on fcgi php handler with the suEXEC enabled, due to security reason that will prevent the use of temporary URL for the php file.
You can check the website by editing host record in your local machine and check whether everything is working fine. You can add the following in the host file.

Follow the steps given below to set temporary host record.

On most Windows systems you can find the hosts file in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc. It might be set to hidden so make sure you have 'show hidden files' turned on. Save the hosts file and flush the DNS cache on your system. Restart your browser and try accessing your domain.

On most Linux-based systems, the hosts file can be located in the /etc/ directory. The hosts file is usually called 'hosts' there. The full path is '/etc/hosts'.

Apple Mac OS
Launch Terminal , found in /Applications/Utilities/ or launched through Spotlight.
Type the following command at the prompt:

sudo nano /private/etc/hosts

Enter the administrator password when requested. You will not see it typed on screen as usual with the command line.
Once the hosts file is loaded within nano, use the arrow keys to navigate to the bottom of the hosts file to make your modifications.
When finished, hit Control+O followed by ENTER/RETURN to save changes to /private/etc/hosts, then hit Control+X to exit out of nano.
Quit out of Terminal when finished.

- Clear all cookies / history in your browser. 
- Restart your PC and Internet modem. 
- Flush your local DNS cache. 
- For windows, run the command 'ipconfig / flushdns' .
- For Mac OSX (Leopard), run the command ' dscacheutil -flushcache '
