Due to performance issues on Web336 (and suspected hardware issues) we are starting an emergency migration to faster hardware.

The server’s main IP will change from 108.59.2.70 to 75.126.149.10.

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.

Update 1pm UTC: The migration is now over. 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. Note that during the migration MySql refused to start on either hardware and we had to restore all MySql data from backup.
