Talking [SOLVED] DNS problems at installation


After the installation is finished, ISPConfig asks what host I want it to run on.
For IP address I fill in, which is the correct IP. Then I fill in 'www' as hostname, and '' as domain...
Though, then it tells me that it can't access itself. Which is quite logical, The nameserver of is pointing to my server directly, and the record for nor has been added yet (it needs to do that áfter installation, probably).
What do I do now? I could add or just (or both) to /etc/hosts, so I avoid it tries to lookup itself (which fails).

Please answer... I've been through the installation process about 5 times now (last 2 times I've even removed the ./config(ure) and tar unpack from the compile install part, because that speeds up the process enormously and doesn't make any errors, as compiling went without any errors)


Edit: Solved!
The hostname was dazjorzserver and domain was, and in /etc/hosts was - so I filled in these variables and it worked!
Anyone having these problems too: execute 'hostname', if it is something like "thehostname.example.tld" then the hostname is thehostname and domain is example.tld, otherwise -- well, dunno about that then =)
