Default Changing IP address of ISPConfig 3 installation

This Wednesday I am going to move my server to another data center. I will also be receiving a new IP address. I have one physical server with VMware on it and one VPS with and ISPConfig installation running on Ubuntu.

I would like to know if there are any specific files aside from /etc/hosts and /etc/network/interfaces that I need modify because of the IP address change. Or will it suffice to simply change the IP address in the "Server Config" section of the ISPConfig web interface?

Thank you for your help.

You will have to change the IP address in:


In ISPConfig, change the IP address in the server settings and if you added it under system > server IP, then you will have to chnage it there too. If the IP has been selected in any websites, then go to tehse websites, ensure that the new IP is selected and click on save (even if the new IP shows up, its required to click on save once).

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Sorry for the up but on my side (ISPconfig I had to execute these two commands:

perl -pi -e 's/old-ip/new-ip/g' /etc/bind/*
and in the next SQL query on dbispconfig database:

update dns_rr set data = 'new-ip' where data = 'old-ip';
If I don't execute this last SQL query the bind domain configuration is not taking in account in ISPConfig even if the Bind entries are modified...

Default Suppose I screwed up

Suppose I screwed up and changed the IP on the server, updated /etc/hosts and /etc/network/interfaces, but FORGOT to update the IP address inside of ISPCONFIG?
How can I correct this folly?
