Due to performance issues on Web42 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on February 11th between 10am and 12pm UTC.
The server’s main IP will change from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206
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 Feb 11th, 11.30am UTC: The migration is starting now (it’s 1h30 behind schedule, sorry about that delay).
Update Feb 11th, 1.30pm UTC: The migration is now over but we’re still working on setting up a proxy on the old server.
Update: 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.
