Due to performance issues (and suspected hardware issues) on Web235 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on January 8th between 10am and 12pm UTC.

The server’s main IP will change from 108.59.11.101 to 108.168.213.94.

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 Jan 8th, 10am UTC: The migration is starting now.

Update 11am 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.
