    Hey guys maybe you could help me out. I got this email before my server crashed. I have no idea how to fix it.

    "IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (new.extendedgalleries.net) resolves to . It should resolve to 66.199.248.242. 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

    "

    Any help would be appicated. thanks.

    Like it says: check/edit your /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/hosts files to see they are properly setup.

    I think I'm getting it fixed now. My current host says it's something about CPanel not saving the information to the named.conf file and that they're fixing it now.

    thanks though,
