    Hey everyone,

    I just set up the perfect ubuntu 10.04 install and unfortunately forgot to put my ip address in /etc/hosts during the process. I have updated it now and rebooted, but I'm still getting DNS servfails.

    Do I have to re-install ISPConfig?

    No, the IP does not matter for ISPConfig as long as you have not selected the wrong IP for any websites yet.

    If the server shall be accessible from the internet, then make sure that you created a DNS A-Record for the hostname of the server that points to the IP address of the server. Changes in DNS may take up to 48 hours.

    You should also check with the command:


    if the correct IP address is connected to your network card.
