CWPpro terminal ERROR: hostname not set.
« on: September 17, 2019, 09:17:51 AM »
When I try to login to CWPpro terminal I got this error:

"ERROR:To use the terminal it is necessary to have a valid hostname configured"

I must admit I have been struggling quite a bit on how to set up the hostname. But finally got it right.. err..
untill I got that error.. it clearly is not.

I have set the hostname as a subdomain A record in mydomains DNS zone. :

I also gives me the option(link) to set a new hostname, but that screws up the SSL settings!

This is my DNS Zone record:
Code: [Select]
; Generated by CWP
; Zone file for
$TTL 14400
mydomain.cum.      86400        IN      SOA     ns1.mydomain.cum. admin.mydomain.cum. (
2013071600      ; serial, todays date+todays
86400           ; refresh, seconds
7200            ; retry, seconds
3600000         ; expire, seconds
86400 )         ; minimum, seconds

mydomain.cum. 86400 IN NS ns1.mydomain.cum.
mydomain.cum. 86400 IN NS ns2.mydomain.cum.

mydomain.cum. IN A
localhost.mydomain.cum. IN A

mydomain.cum. IN MX 0 mydomain.cum.

mail IN CNAME mydomain.cum.
www IN CNAME mydomain.cum.
ftp IN CNAME mydomain.cum.
; Add additional settings below this line
_dmarc 14400 IN TXT "v=DMARC1; p=none"
host     14400   IN      A ; #subdomain host.mydomain.cum
xxx     14400   IN      A ; #subdomain xxx.mydomain.cum
ns1.mydomain.cum.     14400   IN      A  ; #ns1
ns2.mydomain.cum.     14400   IN      A  ; #ns2

English is not my first language, so forgive me for misspelling.

I can't help but notice that your domain says .cum, not .com, that COULD be the issue, if that isn't it, then I sadly do not know, i am in the same boat with my own server.
