Hey,

I'm now on US server and because I live in Europe I would like to migrate to EU. I saw the automatic migration option in Webfaction panel. Will be migration successful or do I have to manually migrate any applications and data? What experience do you have?

Currently I'm running 1 quite simple Django app and 1 php app.

Thank you for your advice.

Hi,

Please check out our docs on automatic / manual migrations. If you migrate your account from a CentOS5 to a CentOS6 server, you will have to do some post-migration steps.

Thank you. If I migrate from CentOS5 to CentOS5 I should be fine? I know that you can't answer that I'll be ok with 100% certainty but what are the odds that everything will be ok?

It should be fine for your Django app. For PHP apps, if you are on server web120+ it should also be fine. Servers web1-web119 have Apache deployed in a different way, and you may need to do some changes (basically, if you have any php_flag or php_value directives in .htaccess you'd need to remove them, and use php.ini instead).

If you run into any troubles after the migration, please open a ticket, and we'll help fixing the problem.
