DNS and Local Vhosts


I think my DNS looks on the internet before local because when I edit my /etc/hosts file 10.0.0.2 wordpress.local it searches google. This is a Fedora 23 machine. I have CentOS 7 machine that look locally first. What should I be looking to edit to fix this?

Hi,

Open /etc/nsswitch.conf and make sure that you have files first in the hosts line:
Code:
hosts:          files dns
