  1. dns problem, hostname wont resolve

    I got this email from cpanel

    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname ([email protected]) resolves to . It should resolve to **server ip address**. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.

    Some are all of these problems can be caused by
    /etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check this file if you
    believe everything else is correct.


    You may be able to
    automaticly correct this problem by using the ' Add an A entry for your
    hostname ' under ' Dns Functions ' in your Web Host Manager
    i checked the A record and i have this
    host.mydomain.com. =>14400 => A => **server ip adress**

    host.mydomain. => 14400 => A => 127.0.0.1
    When asking support about it i got this answer

    host.mydomain **server ip address**
    Using domain server:
    Name: **server ip adress**
    Address: **server ip adress #53**
    Aliases:

    host.mydomain has address **my ip address**
    host.mydomain.com mail is handled by 0 host.mydomain.com
    in my etc/host im seeing this

    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
    64.191.81.69 host.mydomain.com host oldhostname.myolddomain.com oldhostname
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    i changed the orignal host name and domain associated with the server when i first got it thats why im seeing two differen domains and host names

    so what do i have to do so the host name will resolve

    Change 64.191.81.69 to your **server ip address** and remove the old host name from the /etc/hosts file.

    You should probably also check the dns on your server.
