Hi. It’s my first time using digital ocean so forgive me for a noob question.
I’m currently setting up iRedMail with digital ocean. I’ve followed Step 1 and Step 3 of the instructions in “https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-iredmail-on-ubuntu-12-04-x64”
My hostname is “iredmail-testEmailServer” and i put “iredmai” on /etc/hostname. In my /etc/hosts I put “127.0.0.1 iredmail-testEmailServer iredmail localhost locahost.localdomain”
After performing those things and running “bash iRedMail.sh” the following error shows up: “Please configure a fully qualified domain name (fqdn) in /etc/hosts before we go further.”
My question is, why does it return the error above even when I’ve provided my FQDN in /etc/hosts?
Thanks in advance.
