Setting the FQDN in CentOS 7?
I struggle with setting the FQDN in CentOS 7. My hostname is MyWebSpace and my domain for example is mywebspace.io. Below is my current configuration:
# 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.redhat.tmpl # b.) change or remove the value of 'manage_etc_hosts' in # /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg or cloud-config from user-data # The following lines are desirable for IPv4 capable hosts 127.0.0.1 MyWebSpace MyWebSpace 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 127.0.0.1 localhost4.localdomain4 localhost4 # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 MyWebSpace MyWebSpace ::1 localhost.localdomain localhost ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
Can someone show me how to set my FQDN correctly? For example I struggle to understand if I can just set mywebspace.io as FQDN or if I need to add a prefix like whatever.mywebspace.io.
