First off I'm new to howtoforge and am very impressed with the community! I used http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.06 to setup a LAMP server on an old Optiplex and was pleased as punch with the instructions. I'm a n00b when it comes to Linux but the tutorial helped me get my system up and running quickly. Unfortunately, I broke the system shortly thereafter (read *n00b!) and decided to reinstall. I upgraded my system drive to one with greater capacity and proceeded to reinstall the OS. Everything was going fine until I edited /etc/hosts hostname returns only my localhost (for example foo) hostname -f returns as expected localhost.localdomain.org (for example foo.bar.org my hosts file looks like this: 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 192.168.0.X foo.bar.org foo ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback etc...etc.. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
