How i configure my /etc/host on Ubuntu?

  • Posted October 5, 2014

Hi, i created hostname: ‘mysite.com’, but, how i configure the etc/host?

My actual hosts is this

127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 mysite.com mysite xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx mysite.com mysite

Is correct?

But when i execute

sudo service hostname restart

This error appears:

stop: Unknow instance 
hostname stop/waiting

The command hostname return mysite.com and the hostname -f return mysite.com

That’s fine, the hostname service runs hostname -b -F /etc/hostname (see /etc/init/hostname.conf) which exits after setting the hostname, so it doesn’t continue running.

Your /etc/hosts file looks proper, are you experiencing any issues with your hostname config?
