Ping: unknow host but can ping IPs
After restarting my droplet [Ubuntu 15.10 x64], I keep getting “unknown host” message. Pinging IPs though works fine.
I cannot cat resolv.conf, it says “No such file or directory” although on ls -l it does appear as a linked file to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf. which I cannot access either - no resolvconf folder in run dir.
In /etc/network/interfaces, I have dns-nameservers 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 under eth0.
Sorry if any of the above information is irrelevant, I am a Linux noob.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
