Yes, this is DNS propagation -- your domain was still resolving to mire
which no longer had a vhost for the domain, thus showing the default
page for the server. If you want to verify things before dns propagates,
a quick hack is to add `$yourdomain` to your hosts file to
force it resolve to navajos. From the looks of it, things were working
on navajos however!

I see you're also using a wiki; those are broken right now (fscking
script created wikis that rely on the local fs copy of moin on mire!),
but I'm working on fixing/upgrading that now.

Also, bpt ran into the same vhost problem (and documented it!), but I
suspect that enough folks are using vhostDefault for this purpose that
we should add a new option to Easy_domain to redirect www instead.

Thanks for giving migration a shot!
