something tells me this must be a recurring issue.

OS: Fedora 16

when submitting the screen where it asks me for the domain name and ports, i get the error "Admin Port: Host name not found" and "Http Port: Host name not found".

[root@/ 02:40:42]> hostname
overlord.foampile

[root@/ 02:40:49]> domainname
foampile

[root@/ 02:58:31]> more /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1   localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 over
lord.foampile
::1         localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6

[root@/ 02:59:08]> more /etc/hostname
overlord.foampile

thanks

I guess it tries to resolve your hostname for a test and fails. Either add your hostname to /etc/hosts or set the hostname to "localhost" using the command

  • sudo hostname localhost
