    I keep getting the following error when trying to update to Plesk 7.5.3, I have checked my host file and everything seems to be ok, did a nslookup and everything sums up fine, I am at the end of my wits with this and atleast my server is still up but I cannot make anyother changes to the domains since I cannot log on to the control panel.

    This is the error

    ===> Updating /etc/psa/psa.conf...

    Trying to define super-server internet daemon type... xinetd
    Trying to check if xinetd daemon is running... done
    hostname: Unknown host

    Unable to resolve hostname or establish network access to
    local host: . You should fix this problem prior to installing
    Plesk. After you are done, run the installation again.

    error: %pre(psa-7.5.3-fc2.build75050506.13) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
    error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping psa-7.5.3-fc2.build75050506.13
    Not all required packages were installed.

    Can someone please shed some light on this one for me. Thanks

    Edit your /etc/sysconfig/network and write proper hostname value.

    Also check /etc/resolv.conf . Make use you have a nameserver in there other than your Plesk nameserver. This caught me once.

    tried changing the hostname in the /etc/sysconfig/network file to the original hostname when I got the server then checked the /etc/host and /etc/resolv.conf file to see if everything checks out and then restarted the server run the update and all is fine. thanx guys I owe you one.
