    I have posted my Actual IP and Domain Info so it makes sense! this is what i get

    [ipcheck] Problem with DNS setup on
    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.

    Your hostname ( could not be resolved to an IP
    address. This means that /etc/hosts is not set up correctly, and/or
    there is no dns entry for Please be sure that
    the contents of /etc/hosts are configured correctly, and also that
    there is a correct 'A' entry for the domain in the zone file.

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

    You may be able to automatically correct this problem by using the
    'Add an A entry for your hostname' option under 'Dns Functions' in
    your Web Host Manager.

    My Hosts files READ: /etc/hosts

    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost box ks386446

    Resolver file read: /etc/resolv.conf

    my domain name is

    Could anyone tell me what do i need to do to stop these meails - since i migrated like very small percentage of people are unable to access my site!

    Hello :)

    It looks like the hostname already resolves to the correct IP address. Please run the following command to see if the issue persists:

    # /scripts/ipcheck
    If you do not see any output, it means the issue is resolved.

    Thank you.

    I am having the same issue as of last night. I haven't touched the server for a couple of days so I am pretty sure it is not something I have done. I am loathed to start poking it before finding out how it could've got broken in the first place?

    Any ideas?
