This isn't my first post, but since I haven't posted in a long while, I couldn't remember my previous login information.
I work for a guy, from whom I'll be taking over his business in the coming months and I'm learning what I need during this time. We have two servers and have been migrating all the sites from the Old server to the New server, and then he'll be returning the old server back to the company, so he has just one server and bill.
We have all sites but one moved. This isn't the only site that had a dedicated IP, so I am not sure what the complete issue as there is nothing special about this site: SSL certificate and html pages. No database.
We set the site up on the new server, setup the dedicated IP on the new server ... all hooked up and turned on. On the Old server, the site is turned off. However, you can't see the site on the web ... keep getting the Plesk default page saying the hosting for this domain is not configured on this server or no such domain registered in Plesk. The site pings well, but obviously I can't tell if it's pinging to new or old server since it's a dedicated IP.
Now, I did try to delete the dedicated IP listing off of the old server, so the web should have no choice but to find the IP on the new server .... but as soon as I did that and you try to ping the site, the ping times out. As soon as I added that IP back into the old server, the site pings again.
There's nothing for me to do in the DNS account (separate from the servers) because the IP is the same. How do I tell the web to stop looking for the dedicated IP at the old server (where the site is turned off) and to look for it at the new server - where the site is setup and turned on?
Don't know if this means anything, but am moving from a Linux Powerline 3000 + Plesk .... to a Linux Athlon X2 5000 + Plesk
Thanks in advance,
