    Hey guys

    Yup sorry another one of those IP Check threads..mine is a strange one thought some 90% of my visitors are able to visit the site however 10% cannot

    im hosted with OVH / Kimsufi Servers

    Im Running cpanel each morning I am getting this email - its driving me nuts!

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


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

    Your hostname (box.smwebserver.info) 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 box.smwebserver.info. 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.
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    176.31.242.202 box.smwebserver.info box ks386446.kimsufi.com ks386446



    Resolver file read: /etc/resolv.conf
    search smwebserver.info
    domain smwebserver.info
    nameserver 176.31.242.202
    nameserver 178.32.51.12




    my main IP is
    176.31.242.202

    and I purchased another IP for nameservers which is
    178.32.51.12

    my domain name is smwebserver.info

    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!

    and I cant even access it via my Orange Internet on my Mobile Phone but it works fine on Home and Work PC

    any ideas please?

    wonder if someone can post a sample of their hosts and resolver.conf file so i can take a look

    I've done what the email said but still not working :(

    Hello :)

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

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

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    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?

    Thanks

    Jim
