    Hi,

    Sometimes when I enter WHM I get the popup saying Hostname A Entry Missing or Adding an A entry for your hostname I click add etc...

    The problem is, it is already in the domain dns zone along with the nameservers A records etc...

    I have checked /etc/hosts and this has
    When I got the VPS it had the the hostname cpanel.PROVIDER.com, so I changed it to nepture-MY-DOMAIN.com

    Should I remove the the hole line for cpanel.PROVIDER.com ?
    Any where else I can check to get this problem fixed ?

    I have just checked /etc/resolv.conf
    The top to are in the same datacenter as the vps

    This is my /etc/hosts

    # Auto-generated hostname. Please do not remove this comment.
    xx.xxx.x.xxx xxxxx.xxxxxxxxxx.xxx xxxxx
    127.0.0.1 localhost


    and /etc/resolv.conf

    nameserver xx.xxx.xx.xx
    nameserver xx.xxx.xx.xx

    anyways.. go to hypervm >>> network you will see hostname.. change to your desire hostname.

    and go to WHM>>DNS Functions>>Perform a DNS Cleanup

    restart DNS

    and think about my hosts and resolv.conf..
