Please assist with hosts setup
I have an Ubuntu droplet.
Let’s say my domain name is mywebsite.com
My current etc/hosts file looks like this:
# Your system has configured 'manage_etc_hosts' as True. # As a result, if you wish for changes to this file to persist # then you will need to either # a.) make changes to the master file in /etc/cloud/templates/hosts.tmpl # b.) change or remove the value of 'manage_etc_hosts' in # /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg or cloud-config from user-data 127.0.1.1 Mywebsite Mywebsite 127.0.0.1 localhost # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
It should look like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
127.0.1.1 hostname.yourdomain.tld hostname
YourIP hostname.yourdomain.tld hostname
Can you translate that using my domain name, assuming my IP is 188.8.131.52
Am I missing something?
I am using DO DNS servers.
