So I got my VPS on digital ocean a few days back. Installed zpanel on it. Haven’t setup any mx records. Do I need to install mail server also if I installed zpanel already? Plus should I make any changes in the zpanel config file?

I’ve updated the article. :]

<b>“When I run DNS health. It shows me reverse DNS not set up …”</b><blockquote>“Make sure your droplet’s hostname is a FQDN which points to the droplet (e.g. as long as points to your droplet’s IP address).”</blockquote>I’d be helpful if that advice/instruction was included in <a href=“”>How To Create Your First DigitalOcean Droplet Virtual Server</a>. Kamal, tell Etel to put the Eggnog down & updated the article. ;-)
