Server Migration - 9th June 2012

Posted by rs picture rs on Thu 07 Jun, 2012 17:07:09 +0000

We’re doing a server migration this weekend (9th June 2012) to some bigger, faster (and meaner!) servers. These servers have much more storage and capacity, and will allow us to scale better in the future.

To be able to do this, we need to take the platform down for 4 hours starting at 9am London BST. In all our trial migration, the switch over was done in just over 2 hours. So, we’re adding another couple of hours as a contingency.

One thing to note: our IP address will change from to We’ve added a page on our documentation site about this:

As our IP address is changing, all SSH users will need to re-verify our SSH key fingerprint (which remains the same): ca:3f:90:8c:b0:93:c0:bd:00:ad:76:37:fb:8c:65:f4

This migration does not affect dedicated instance users, only those who use our main platform.

If you have any concerns about this, please do raise a ticket.

We’ll be on Twitter posting updates as we go through the migration:!/xpdev
