Webfaction just recently moved my account to the new server. From Webfaction migrate

  1. Location of the new server: USA
  2. Operating system of the new server: Centos6-64bit
  3. Please choose the migration method: Please migrate the data for me.

OK, I tried login FileZilla I get dialog:


Host key mismatch

Warning: Potential security breach!
The server’s host key does not match the key that has been cached. This means that either the administrator has changed the host key, or you are actually trying to correct to another computer pretending to be the server.

If the host key change was not expected, please contact the server administrator.
Details for new key:
Host: username.webfactional.com:22
Fingerprint: ssh-rsa 2048 76:0b:11:af:d0:2f:b0:51:f7:fd:41:a7:2a:8d:29:18

Trust the new key and carry on connecting?
[ ] Update cached key for this host [OK] [Cancel]


Should I select “Update cached key for this host?”

Yes.

The "issue" here is that username.webfactional.com is now pointing to a new server, which has its own RSA key, different than the one on your old server. FileZilla is connecting to the same hostname, but is receiving different authentication data, which confuses it.

If you need more information then please do not hesitate to contact us again.
