[Done] Migration of Web307 to faster hardware on January 25th, IP address change

Posted in Downtime by

Due to performance issues on Web307 we are going to migrate it to faster hardware on January 25th between 10am and 12pm UTC.

The server’s main IP will change from 108.59.9.163 to 184.172.15.229. The open ports IP address will change from 108.59.13.234 to 75.126.146.98.

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 10:00 UTC: The migration is starting now
Update 12:50 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
