Due to performance issues on Web348 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on March 6th between 10am and 12pm UTC.

The server’s main IP will change from 199.115.114.45 to 75.126.173.133

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 March 6th, 10am UTC: The migration is starting now

Update 12pm UTC: The migration will take a bit longer than the allocated window due to some technical difficulties when putting the old server in rescue mode. They are now resolved and the migration has started.

Update 1pm 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.
