Okay, this has been confusing me the entire time through the ISPconfig setup, although I did succeed in the setup, everything seems to work great, except I am having huge issues with the SquirrelMail for some reason... I can't login, but anyways!
1st: The entire time through the install, you kept referring to hostname as server1.example.com
, what exactly is this hostname stuff? Is it important, can it be anything we want? do the hostnames have to match everywhere? /etc/hostname, /etc/hosts, and setting up ispconfig? I honestly don't know what the hostname is?
What questions can I ask myself in choosing a hostname? Does it have to be a domain you plan on hosting? I mean, how do you choose a hostname!!?!?!
2nd: If for example I used the hostname ubuntu2.splitnetworks.com, do I have to register that nameserver somewhere and point it to my ispconfig box? For some reason I am under the impression your hostname must mean something and have to be a registered namesever? Maybe I am 100% wrong.
3rd: Since so far, I have been keeping the hostname the same through out everything in the howto (ubuntu2.splitnetworks.com), can I change the hostname in ispconfig to something else? for example: "myserver"
Someone please shine some light on this probably very dumb question that is DRIVING ME CRAZY
Thank you for helping, and I know it's prob a dumb question...
