WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I'm in the process of moving a wordpress app, and some mediawiki apps from one webfaction account to another. Suggestions for best practices? I am completely new to WebFaction. Under normal conditions, I'd just move the code, then move the databases, then make sure the domains are pointing in the right place. But I get the feeling there may be an easier way, here.

Thanks!

Yes, the best-practice guide is available in our documentation, here.

However, your approach is correct. You can copy the code with an rsync command. Importing the databases is manual, but then updating the website records to point to the new machine handles all of the DNS configuration. In practice, this usually only takes a couple of hours.
