It seems the localips must be chmod -i before changing a server to a --> Server Configuration --> Change IP Address (Already active Checked)
It will then set the new ip and everything is fine.. Some point later I try to preview the site .. "Connections to IP addresses not on this system are not allowed : "
I then need to go back and added all ips to the now NULL file... I then chattr +i and it works again ...
I worked around the problem, and so I don't need any support.. Just reporting the issue.. Thanks Don
