Web155 is currently down due to filesystem errors. We’re working to correct them and will update this post when we have more information.
Update 18:56 UTC: The filesystem appears to be partially corrupted. We have started an emergency migration of the server to new hardware. We will update this post as the migration progresses.
Update: 21:26 UTC: All MySQL databases and home directories starting with “a” have been migrated. The MySQL server and web servers have been started on the new server and the first websites are back online. We are working on migrating the PostgreSQL data and the rest of the home directories.
Note that 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 10 days to redirect all HTTP and HTTPS traffic to the new server
Update 23:16 UTC: All PostgreSQL databases and home directories up to the letter “c” have been migrated. We are working on the rest of the home directories.
Update 07:21 UTC: Home directories up to the letter “i” have been migrated. We are working on the rest of the home directories.
Update 09:52 UTC: Home directories up to the letter “p” have been migrated. We are working on the rest of the home directories.
Update 14:30 UTC: The migration is now over. If you notice any problems with your account open a ticket and we’ll look into it asap.
