    Good day,

    Running a Ubuntu 18.04 and upgrading to the latest ISPConfig. I noticed that the servername is OK in hostnamectl (and in the postfix file) but I get a wrong name in the SSL/tls generation path and DNS lookup... (Normal because it is wrong)
    Create new ISPConfig SSL certificate (yes,no) [no]: yes

    Checking / creating certificate for
    Using certificate path /etc/letsencrypt/live/

    Where would I go to correct this typo (most probably an old mistake?). I would like to generate a Let'sEncrypt certificate for the machine (to comply to Apple),

    Thank you in advance,

    Check with commands
    hostname -f
    what the configured hostname and FQDN are, and see instructions in man hostname or ISPConfig Perfect Server Manual to change.

    Wow you are right. I learned something today. hostnamectl and hostname -f are not the same. cat /etc/hostname was also good. The error seemed to be in /etc/hosts...

    I fixed everything, rebooted, reran the ' --force parameter' and its's all good now.

    Thank you very much for your support.
