    Changing Hostname are not updated, I confirmed that Changing hostname reboot reverts back to Old. Doing the Graceful Server Reboot then still are set to old. Please let me know to fix.

    Hello,

    Is this a VPS? If so, what type? In some cases, administrators must contact their VPS hosting provider to request help with changing the hostname associated with the VPS at the hardware node level.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    May I know which method you are using to change hostname ?

    Also, please try to change hosting using below command.

    Login to server through SSH and run :
    Code:
    hostname your.hostname
    
    ( replace your original hostname which is you want to set )


    Make sure hostname changed or not in the hosts file
    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts

    You mentioned your hosting provider addressed the issue in the past. Could you consult with your hosting provider again to see what they changed, and if the setting they changed has reverted?

    Thank you.

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
