Changing IP addresses

Changing an IP address appears to go OK but the IP is not added to the network interface. This is in an effort to migrate about 60 sites to a new machine and being a coward I am using a new dedicated IP for each virtual server. Just to make sure the backup works and then I can just change it in DNS. Restarting the network and then using the ifconfig command shows the IP is not really there. ?? Would it be better to edit a file manually rather than use the control panel?



I will just use the restore from a backup option. That will properly add the IP at the time it is restored (a different IP) and it seems to work. So I just won't change it after the fact.

Were you restoring domains that have their own IPs, or are all your domains on the same IP?
