Is the connection still valid after changing the IP?
I think this should work:
You should run your perl script from within shutdown function, so it is run after the connection is closed
and any output is sent to the browser. Send header('Refresh: 5; url=http://NEW_IP/next_page.php');
to redirect the browser after five seconds, also print some html informing the user he will be redirected,
then exit. Your shutdown function will be called, and you can change the ip
