Trying to set up DNS/Email with Plesk... lost
Hi guys.. ok.. a whole range of problems.. and after nights of trials.. and googling.. i think i am not searching it right.. so please give some insight
1) I installed a fresh copy of RHEL3 on server, then started to install plesk via their auto update (got problems too, but never mind first).
I realise i can't start httpd after installing.. it says "Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for Server name"
I know one thing that doesn't help is that i dunno how to start plesk after installing (ie. start configuring via web panel). Cos can't find instructions
2) I Can't do traceroute beyond my gateway
Is that normal?
3) Is it true that my hostname should be the designated domain name i will be giving it (they will be acting as dns/email server, thus ns1.xxx.com, ns2.xxx.com)
and i should be able to ping myself with that name?
cos i am testing in the internal network still....
