    All over!
    Let's say our host name is server & the domain our server is setup on is domain.com.

    We upgraded to RH 9 from 7.3 about 2 weeks ago & now we have no "A" record on server.domain.com Now we can access the url via http://server.domain.com so I assume that it is just missing an "A" record.

    This poses a problem with our SSL cert that WebMail uses. How do I add an "A" record to server.domain.com?

    2 days ago I went into WHM, then DNS Functions, then Add an A Entry for your Hostname. All the below was right so I clicked on "Add the entry". What else do I have to do?

    Found your hostname to be: server.domain.com
    Found your short hostname to be: server
    Found your domain name to be: domain.com
    Found your main ip to be: 000.000.000.000
    If this looks correct,
    Add the entry

    Under Edit DNS Zone there is no server.domain.com record but under domain.com there is a server server "A" record. What else do I have to do?

    your a record will be under the main domain name...

    ie if you have yourserver.com

    and it has an mx record, a cname record and stufff, then when you create:

    server.yourname.com

    it will create an a record in the dns zone file of yourserver.com

    now if you create it under some different name.. it will create a separate zone file for it...

    If i didnt make sense... let me know :)

    hope it helps
