Hello,

Do you want to change the hostname of your server? If so, why can't you use Main >> Networking Setup >> Change Hostname in WHM ? After this is done, you may to reset the service SSLs too.

Thank you,
Nibin.

Also you could issue this command through SSH:

PHP:
hostname SUB.DOMAIN.COM
with changing the hostname

also edit this file and modify the hostname in it:

PHP:
nano /etc/hosts
Don't forget also to restart network

PHP:
service network restart

If you didn't understand ModServ's post, then you should probably hire an admin.

Hello,

If you would like to follow the manual steps as mentioned above by ModServ, please make sure you will change the hostname in httpd.conf too. In fact using the WHM interface will make all these manual changes automatically for you :)

Thank you,
Nibin.

>>>> What in my post you didn't get it right ?

i did it all you said and now when i check my server's hostnames - it still shows inside the WHM panel - not the hostnames nor nameservers that i changed to -

>>>>> Please explain why insisting on TeamViewer?

i did not! i want someone with skills to oversee me changing things on SKYPE via me sharing my screen with the server admin with skills - not just words without double checking and wasting time in forums -

i have no time to go back and forth - so if you want me paying then i will pay as long as someone with real skills can oversee my actions - is it a problem in 21 century to stop wasting each other time and sit down LIVE via instant messanger for 10-15 mins and oversee what I'm what im doing wrong?? -

why all this negativity to a mortal like you - i only invite you to check on me and get paid by me - why this bullying non-sense -

gosh! you, smart server-people, you can already figure that out that im in the dark here so to speak - so stop by at my virtual office via skype and see me thru till all is happy - we could have been done by now and you could have been rdozensa few dosens of bucks for everyone's sanity -

just keep in mind i'm diabetic person and might die because of your hassling me around here - so pls forget the forum and stop by at my virtual office sequestered via skype and i will be glad to show you LIVE exactly what i have and you will tell me LIVE what i need to change - i will never be your competitor in anyway if thats why you're afraid to do it LIVE which is much easier on me as i can speak for myself only! -

for modserv's attention:


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.

Your hostname (welcome.n***************n.com) 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 welcome.n***************n.com. 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.


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
