    Greetings,
    What is the best way to change the IP of a site on the same server to minimize down time. It is easy when changing to a different box when you just change everything over and upload to a new box, there is no down time. Just wondering if there is a "best" way to do this. Thanks.

    One suggestion is to lower the TTL value in the zone files to something like 300 or 600 for 48 hours before making the change.
