    So, I did the perfect setup...on ubuntu feisty...everything is set up and working fine; however, I bought an ssl certificate which is different from the info I used to set up the server...which is fine because port 81 works regardless of which domain. The problem is /mailuser tends to want to go back to the server's hostname and domain and gives the self-signed certificate error. So, my question: is there a simple way to change the server's hostname and domain? And will it affect ispconfig and everything else? If not, is there a way to make it so mailuser doesn't keep trying to use the server's domain?

    in addition to changing it elsewhere? Or is these the only two places where I need to change it?

    This are the only places that affect the ispconfig web interface.

    It still tries to switch back. Where else should I change it? I changed it once in each of the files you posted.

    Is the value of ServerName correct in /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf?

    If you're handling email then you also should change /etc/mailname; in my case ISPConfig / postfix attempted and failed to deliver to [email protected] old hostname until I changed it in this file.
