Due to performance issues on Web245 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on December 20th between 10am and 12pm UTC.

The server’s main IP will change from 199.115.114.39 to 75.126.173.137

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 20th, 10am UTC: The migration is starting now.

Update Dec 20th, 11.36am UTC: 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.
