    Trying to find all the places I need to change the hostname from my initial install. I read somewhere that it is preferrable to use an IP address rather than a hostname. Kinda confusing...:confused:

    Run this:

    echo > /etc/hostname
    /bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname
    (replace with your hostname) and also change the hostname in /etc/hosts.

    I think I have the same problem:
    After changing the hostname in every location I know of and rebuilding the security thing, there´s still a message when opening webmail: "You are connecting to '' but certificate belongs to ''...". The 'oldhostname' ist the name the server had when I made the installation. So there must be another location (or more than one?) where the old name is stored. I could even just reinstall ispconfig but I´m not sure if that would help because an upgrade usually touches not all config files (hmmm, that´s why it´s called an upgrade, isn´t it? :D )

    Try to rebuild your SSL certificates as described here:

    Just before reading through the whole thread: If this is the description on how to rebuild the ispconfig certificates (as in the faq) I allready did that.

    OK, I think I found it. It´s the configuration of the virtual host for the admin panel in /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
