[Resolved] Moved to new host – sub-site still served from old IP

    Just moved my WP multisite to a new server. DNS is fully propagated. Main site (and its WP admin) and network dashboard are being served from the new IP. Sub-site and it’s dashboard are still being served from the old IP.

    Is there are setting in the plugin that needs to be changed?

  • Shouldn’t be, but search the database for the old IP.

    Generally WP doesn’t use the IP unless you tell it to. Did you?

    @Ipstenu- Thanks! No, haven’t done anything that would put IP in there. Just changed DNS nameservers a few hours ago, so it may just not be resolved here yet. Can you check and see what you’re getting on your end?

    Main site

    Sub Site

    Old IP is 69.175.71.114

    New IP should be 67.227.244.179

    Liquidweb (new host) says both are resolving to the server on their end. I’ve gotshowIP firefox addon now showing old IP for both.

    First off, high five for LiquidWeb! 🙂 They’re my host too 😉 Love ’em.

    They both resolve to the new IP for me, but a check on them at http://www.whatsmydns.net/ came up all red which is … interesting. When did you put in the DNS change?

    nameserver records actually take a bit longer to fully propogate for some reason. 🙂

    @Ipstenu- DNS was changed at 12 Noon Eastern- about 8 hours ago. FWIW,in each site, under tools/domain mapping, I entered the new server IP address, but I’m not sure whech server I was on when I did that!

    Under network admin/sites, the mapping field is blank for both sites= maybe because the mapped site has the same name as its domain.

    As of now, everything- both sites and all dashboards are on the old IP.

    At http://www.whatsmydns.net/ I’m getting all green, and all but one on the new server.

    FWIW,in each site, under tools/domain mapping, I entered the new server IP address, but I’m not sure whech server I was on when I did that!

    Liquidweb gives you a temp URL still, right? You should be able to go in and look at cpanel that way. From there, hop into the database and search for the old IP.

    They’re showing as new IP for me, so I think you may have to wait out the DNS caching :/ It can take up to 72 hours, but usually less. Depends on what the TTL was set to before you switched.

    Not sure what you mean by “temp” by I have cpanel access to both the old and the new servers. I usually access the database from myphpadmin- can I do a search there? I’ll check…Just weird that most of the world except for me is supposedly getting the new DNS.

    Ran various searches- found nothing. I guess I’ll take an anti OCD pill and check on things tomorrow- or at least not until bedtime 😉

    I’ve got some issues with W3TC that need to be investigated (not related to this thread) so anxious for everything to be settled on the new VPS.

    Still trying to figure out what’s going on here. It’s been 22+ hours since DNS was changed, yet neither site is resolving here to the new IP. If I ping each site at http://just-ping.com/ the primary site shows about 50% propagated, the sub-site 100%. Still wondering if the domain mapping plugin is somehow involved?

    The consequences of this is that network and individual WP site admin is still pointing to the old server, so any changes made there will not appear on the “relocated” site.

    the domain mapping plugin only stores the IP address for your usage. It doesn’t actually DO any redirecting with it, as the domain has to hit your server first. before it even gets to wp.

    did you change the dns records for your main domain to the new server?

    @Andrea_r- Thanks!

    Yes- aware of that.

    did you change the dns records for your main domain to the new server?

    Yes- DNS nameservers for both domains were successfully changed 24 hours ago.

    Everyone but me is getting them from the new IP (67.227.244.179). I’m hoping it’s just a matter of waiting ’till my ISP (AT&T Uverse) DNS cache refreshes.

    Probably. 🙂 I moved a couple of domains recently to a new registrar & accidental blew away the records except for the nameservers (which were pointing to the wrong spot because I overrode them with A records).

    two domains, both going to the same IP. I changed both at the the same time. It easy took one of those half a day longer than the other one to show up and it took the full 3 days.

    drove me nuts.

    So, the fact that other people are seeing it just fine means eventually it’ll sort itself out for you. 🙂

    Thanks Andrea. I guess it’s time for me to take an anti-OCD pill and find other more important things to do for a couple days! I’ll post back on Monday either way.

    Both sites are resolving correctly now! Thanks, All, for the hand-holding!

    OK..now the main site is on the new server and the sub-site on the old!
