Due to performance issues on Web211 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on December 18th between 10am and 12pm UTC.
The server’s main IP will change from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
If you’re using WebFaction’s DNS servers for all your domains then you don’t need to do anything.
If you’re using non-WebFaction DNS servers for some of your domains then you will have to update their A records yourself. We will leave a proxy running on the old server for 5 days to redirect all HTTP and HTTPS traffic to the new server.
We’ll update this post as the work progresses
Update Dec 13th, 9.30am: Due to issues with the current hardware we have decided to do the migration now instead of waiting until Dec 18th.
Update Dec 13h, 1.42pm: The migration is now over. If you experience any issues with your sites open a ticket and we’ll look into it asap. We have setup a proxy on the old server to redirect all HTTP and HTTPS traffic to the new server. The proxy will stay for 5 days.
