Due to performance issues on Web83 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on January 8th between 1pm and 3pm UTC.

The server’s main IP will change from 108.59.9.139 to 108.168.205.78.

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.

2015-01-08 13:02 UTC: The migration is starting now.

2015-01-08 15:23 UTC: The migration is still in progress.

2015-01-08 17:12 UTC: The migration is taking longer than expected. We are currently 75% complete.

2015-01-08 17:32 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.
