    /etc/hosts and /etc/rc.conf

    What should my hosts and rc.conf hostname contain? I don't do my own DNS, I use godaddys parked servers + total dns control. I only have 1 box at my host layaredtech - so there are no other computers on the networks that I need to resolve locally with the hosts file. I used bk1 as my host name because thats what I call my server. Is this ok?

    This is what my hosts file contains

    ::1 localhost.localdomain localhost localhost.localdomain localdomain

    and this is rc.conf


    Is this ok? All of the domains hosted on my box are virtual.

    Those are just fine. You might want to change the hostname in /etc/hosts to reflect your own system hostname though. Additionally, you may need to add some lines into your rc.conf for your ip addresses. I know I had to do that for my additional ip addresses on freebsd 6.1.
