    I want to change the hostname e.g. from server1.mydomain.com to server.xyz.com, what would be the best to way to do that without affecting my ISPConfig.


    Thanks

    Change the hostname in /etc/hosts, /etc/hostname, /etc/mailname and postfix main.cf file. Then restart the server.

    If you use opensuse or centos, then you will have to use the network configuration utilitys of the linux distribution to change the hostname.
