    Under the DNS manager, there are a number of hostnames that I need to change the IP address for. Is there anyway to state that all hostnames use 1 IP address instead of having all of my different hostnames with declaring each one an individual IP?

    Kind of hard to explain I think. For hostname, can I put something like @ instead of the actual hostname so all hostnames of a domain will use that single IP?

    I guess hardly anything of mine has an A record anymore. This one looks all messed up.

    If I try to add an A record for the domain under the DNS Manager, I type forums for the hostname and for the IP and it gives me this error:
     There is already an A Record entry for this host in this zone.
    There are no records listed for that domain under ISPconfig so I'm not sure what it means by a record existing. I checked the Recycle Bin and it's completely empty.

    When I use "dig" on my websites, I get no answer section. What the heck? Why can't I do anything with my sites? I really need to get these things up and running as they are pretty important.

    I guess my freaking out solved my problem. I just went into the ISPconfig database, the dns_a table and deleted the "existing" entries, went back to my sites and saved them and it added the records. Everything seems to be working now.
