Due to performance issues on Web210 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on May 26th between 11am and 4pm UTC.
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 5 days to redirect all HTTP and HTTPS traffic to the new server.
We’ll update this post as the work progresses.
Update 2014-05-26 11:30 UTC: The migration is starting now
Update 2014-05-26 16:00 UTC: The migration is taking a bit longer than planned and we are still syncing the data to the new machine.
Update 2014-05-26 17:45 UTC: As there is still quite a bit of data to migrate we have started re-enabling the services on the new machine and we have set up a proxy on the old machine to forward all HTTP and HTTPS requests to the new machine. So far all MySQL and PostgreSQL databases have been migrated and all home directories up to the letter “q” have been migrated and their sites have been re-enabled. We’re still working on migrating the rest of the home directories.
Update 2014-05-26 21:30 UTC: Home directories up to the letter “s” have been migrated and their websites have been re-enabled. We’re still working on migrating the rest of the home directories.
Update 2014-05-26 23:30 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.
