    Hostname problem?

    Hi,

    I received this message:

    Subject: This is e-mail notification to warn you that your hostname is setup improperly on your system.
    Cannot find your hostname using the command '/bin/hostname --fqdn'. Please check this command to ensure it works properly.
    If you get the error:
    hostname: Name or service not known

    Check your /etc/resolv.conf and try setting it to use 127.0.0.1Unable to resolve your hostname, . This will cause major issues when sending email.

    Solution:

    Create an A record for your hostname (.) in your DNS control panel. Point the hostname to your server's main IP address. Also check /etc/hosts to ensure that the server ip is correctly set.
    Can someone help me solve this problem more accurately?
