I was just browing this Japanese clothing website then I press the "back" button and the page loaded up as a blank page with this message on it "Your DNS cache is old!?"
What does this mean? blink.gif

I empitied the cache but it still has that messge...is it a bug??? unsure.gif
andrzej
are you using internet explorer?
Ringo
No I use Safari. It came with my Mac....
andrzej
well you should have said that


i'm not too knowledgable with macs but, i googled (which you should do)

and found something:
CODE
sudo lookupd -flushcache


try that at the terminal/command prompt



not sure if it would work, but you can also ditch safari and get firefox or opera instead
Ringo
^ thanks for your reply andrzej biggrin.gif

I just update my mac pragrams and now that Japanese page I was talking about opens up. I'm still not really sure what was wrong tho...

Yes I did google "DNS cache" but I still wasn't really sure ^^;;
.......Is that code for locating caches on the computer?

It's not a bug right? It's just some caching problem right ^^?

andrzej
i'm not really sure, when i've used macs i've never had that problem

that code, i'm assuming that sudo makes you root/admin and then lookupd (look upd) is a command used with the switch (-flushcache) to clear the cache
Ringo
