    Ok, asking here for clarity on an issue.

    I have an ispconfig3 running on "domain.tld"
    Now, i would like to move it to be "sub.domain.tld"

    Ive found some guides for it, but most have seemed to be a little old, like
    You will have to change the hostname in the following files -
    Then restart ISPConfig via '/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart'
    ..and then log into the ISPConfig control panel and navigate to management > server > settings and change the hostname there as well.
    What I am trying to make sure of is that this still applies, or are there more things to consider when doing this?

    /etc/init.d/postfix restart
