Problems with manual conversion scripts

Jump to: navigation, search

On How_To_Convert_a_UserBase_Manual_to_Docbook#Conversion we instruct manual creators to add an ip-number to their /etc/hosts in order to be able to access userbase via the API. This is needed in order to get past the encapsula cache (if memory serves). However, recently it seems no longer to work. If I add the given ip-address to my /etc/hosts I can no longer access userbase either in the browser or through the API. I haven't used this for some time now, and wonder if this might have anything to do with the upgrade of the site?

Maybe the ip address changed. Does it work without doing the host step? But it looks very strange that we need to change the host file to access the API. Does it work without it?

Yes, it works.

Great, thanks. I'll remove the offending part on the help page since it is no longer needed.
