Hello,

Since the recent update of cpanel, I have received this email :

IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
The hostname (xxx) resolves to [why a blank here ???]. It should resolve to
xx.xxx.xx.xxx. 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
Actually, I don't have problems with my website.
I am totally newbie. Does I need to make any change ?

When I do: service network restart, it only brings up the main IP, and shuts down the others.
After some googling, I found the following information:

You actually need to issue

/etc/init.d/virtualhosting start
(not restart) or
service virtualhosting start
to rebind the ipaddresses for the ip-based site.

I don't know if this is specific to ThePlanet or if it's a Cpanel/WHM problem in general.
I would be interested to read comments from others on this.

Thanks

I have the same problem but after putting a ticket to ThePlanet support all errors are solved. Here is the answer:
I have put two Recursive Lookups DNS severs in your /etc/resolv.conf file. Recursive DNS is required to lookup domain names that are not in your local name servers. While some folks try to run the client and server at the same time since they use the same port 53 they will not work locally.
tech support
The two Recursive Lookups DNS severs are with ThePlanet IP's.
Now I'm happy. So when you have such kind of issues just put a ticket to your support.

Cheers
