Problem setting up google DNS verification

    I'm trying to setup google DNS verification using ispconfig 3. It tells me to setup a CNAME with the hostname of this form:

    and (this is the issue) the target:

    Obviously I've replaced some details with the X's, but the length of the target hostname is correct. When I enter it, ispconfig tells me:

    "Target hostname format invalid"

    I tried shortening the target hostname by removing some of the long string of letters and ispconfig accepted that, suggesting that the problem is simply one of length.

    Does anyone have any idea what I can do to make it accept the full target hostname?

    Which ISPConfig version do you use?

    Change line 103 of the file /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/dns/form/dns_cname.tform.php from:

    'regex' => '/^[\w\.\-]{1,64}$/',


    'regex' => '/^[\w\.\-]{1,255}$/',

    This has been changed already in ispconfig 3.0.5 RC 1.

    That seems to have done the trick. Thanks very much for the quick help!
