Due to performance issues on Web57 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on April 28th between 11am and 3pm UTC.

The server’s main IP will change from 199.58.84.71 to 50.97.173.20

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 2014-04-28 11:00 UTC: The migration is starting now

Update 2014-04-28 14:30 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
