Today I needed to flush the DNS cache on my Mac Book Pro running Leopard or Snow Leopard... I honestly don't know (or care). Anyway, here's the mini how-to.


How-To Clear the DNS Cache on a MAC OSX System

Step 1 - Open Terminal (Press Command Spacebar, Type Terminal, Hit Enter)

Step 2 - Type: dscacheutil -flushcache

Step 3 - Hit enter key (duh)


That's it. Hope that saved a few of your MAC Newbs (like me) a few minutes.
