I have moved 5 websites to a VPS server and updated the DNS with the new name servers. I restored these sites from complete backups within WHM.
The IP address of the original host was 123.456.789 (anonymised) and the IP address of the destination host is 126.96.36.199. However, the IP address is resolving to 88.88.681.63 (an address very similar to the destination host). The A records in cPanel on the destination host correctly point to 188.8.131.52.
I had a maintenance page set up to show on both the source and destination hosts, however when I browse to the site, it is resolving to the wrong IP address so it is instead showing:
Index of /
Apache/2.2.22 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.22 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/184.108.40.20635 PHP/5.3.16 Server at mydomain.com.au Port 80
When I ping the domain, it sometimes resolves to the correct IP address but most of the time it resolves to the incorrect IP address.
Given that ts has been about 9 hours since the name servers were updated, is this normal behavior during propagation or have I done something wrong?
