I got an email today announcing that https://homebrew.stackexchange.com/ was open in private beta. However, when I try to go there, I see a sad panda (or confused, or embarrassed, I'm not really sure).


So, is the site up yet? Is this just a hiccup in the process? Should I try again tomorrow?

This sounds like what was happening with biostar.SE, as described in this question, but that site seems to be working now. Also, homebrew.SE was never a 1.0 site, so I don't think this is the same problem, just a similar result.

We screwed up the DNS on this. We'll be emailing everyone again tomorrow. Sorry about that.


I had to put an entry in my hosts file (rchern=awesome) for it to work but I was having the same problem earlier today.


It seems to be working for me. Have you tried a hard refresh?

  • It's going to depend on what your upstream servers have if they still have the bad entry in cache you're going to have to wait it out.
