FreeBSD Server Move
Follow this procedure when moving a FreeBSD box from one IP to another.
- Change DNS to new IP address. You'll want the TTL on the domain to be pretty short, so that the IP address updates quickly.
- Change ifconfig settings in
- Reboot the box (best, to test the new ifconfig line), or do a manual ifconfig to the new IP.
- TEST everything
