Due to performance issues on Web200 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on February 18th between 10am and 12pm UTC.

The server’s main IP will change from 108.59.11.77 to 184.172.15.230.

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.

2014-02-18 11:00 UTC The migration is starting now.

2014-02-18 16:32 UTC While migrating the latest data the filesystem on the old hardware crashed, some sites are currently down, we’re working to restore them asap.

2014-02-18 20:00 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.
