Default Draper drake problem at Serveraxis

Hi there
I toke a virtual server at ServerAxis.com recently, now that im trying to install ISPConfig i have a problem at the name definition of the server, I CANT CHANGE IT.
After edit the /etc/hosts file i try the conmands hostname and hostname -f, The first one give me the name that serveraxis.com asing to my server ant the sencond just say Unknown Host, not the one that i define in /etc/hosts, so i dont know what to do.
Obviusly at the mysql password stage i get errors regarding the host and in the postfix configuration too.
Can u give some tips to fix this issue???

Thanks a lot

You must set the hostname in /etc/hostname and not in /etc/hosts. It does not matter if the second command for setting the mysql password fails. You can continue with the howto and set the password later with phpmyadmin.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
