    You'll also need to update DNS records which point to the old address, any websites set to that address (sites using '*' are fine), change under System > Server Config and check both System > Server IP addresses and System > System IPv4 mapping. Maybe do a quick 'grep -R IP /etc/' to search for the old ip in use in other places, eg. maybe it was a nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf.
