    Change the hostname under Management > Server > Settings and also in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/ and /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf (if it's in there).
    You might also have to change the hostname in /etc/hosts and in the Postfix configuration.
    Which distribution do you use?

    Please check the hostname on the shell with the folowing command:

    hostname -f

    if the hostname is not correct, create a file /etc/hostname which contains your new hostname, then run the command:

    hostname -F /etc/hostname

    I think that for Fedora, you must set the hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network.
