- Plesk for Linux
- Plesk for Windows
Why Plesk Onyx 17.8 and later versions do not allow changing the hostname during initial configuration?
This behavior is by-design. Initial configuration has been changed in Plesk Onyx 17.8.
To change the hostname once a new Plesk Onyx 17.8 (or later) server is set up and configured, do the following:
Go to Tools & Settings > Server Settings and specify a valid hostname.
Alternatively, run the command below in a command-line interface specifying a valid hostname. The command is valid for both Linux and Windows servers:
# plesk bin server_pref --update -hostname server.example.com
