Default Computer name storage


I have a need to change the name of my Ubuntu FF computer. Does anyone know
where the computer's name is stored? Does it need to be changed in more
than one place? Tks for any help.

Default Computer name storage - found it


If anyone needs to know it's in /etc/hostname - change then reboot

Make sure you make any adjustments to /etc/hosts ... localhost = your ff
server and any IP address ie. 192.168.0.102 which point to the old name
should be changed to reflect the new server name.
