Due to performance issues on Web301 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on April 3th between 5pm and 7pm UTC. The server’s main IP will change from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 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 2014-04-03 5pm UTC: The migration is starting now Update 2014-04-03 7pm UTC: The migration is taking a bit longer than planned and we are still syncing the data to the new machine.
Update 2014-04-03 9:50pm 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
