Any way to develop at numerical ip on Plesk servers?
Plesk is problematic because it won't serve numerical ip sites

My new host told me I can't do http://xx.xx.xx.xx/~username/ (ip domain addressing) because Plesk won't serve that for whatever reason. [Linux Apache/2.0.52 (CentOS)]

That's normally how I develop sites, then point the client's domain to that when it's launch day.

I could develop on a subdirectory, but it's one more thing to remember to change in web files and db fields when launching.

Any thoughts on this?

It's a virtual private server, if that matters.

Is the IP shared in Plesk? How many IP's are dedicated to your VPS?

On our dedicated server, if an IP is dedicated to a site, for example, if the site has a secure cert and requires a dedicated IP, it indeed will serve up the page via ip address. You might see if you can go into your IP pool and at least temporarily dedicate the IP to the site. This, of course, will point any other sites on your VPS to that web site.

Might not even be possible with a VPS, I do not know, so test with caution.
