    I just purchased a 30 domains licence of Plesk 8
    I am trying to install it on a i386 Fedora Core 4 server.
    After I run the autoinstaller I receive the following error after psa-qmail is installed and trying to run:

    Unable to determine the domain name of your computer.
    Please, run the 'domainname' or 'hostname -f' command
    from the console and make sure that the command returns your domain name.

    ERROR while trying to get domain name
    Check the error reason(see log file: /tmp/psa-qmail.log), fix and try again


    error: %post(psa-qmail-1.03-fc4.build80060331.13.i586) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

    When I do hostname -f I receive: r1060784-001

    Another thing that bothers me is that Plesk is trying to install PHP5, is Plesk working with PHP5?

    Please help
    Thanks you

    this is caused by you only giving your server a hostname instead of a FQDN.

    Vi the /etc/hosts file and change the localhost line that contains your hostname to have the FQDN first eg. myhostname.mydomain myhostname localhost.domain localhost
