I am using Webmin and Usermin on my Red Hat 8.0 machine and it really is
quite nice. One thing bugs me though, my webim and usermin screens show:
"Version 1.090 on localhost.localdomain (Redhat Linux 8.0)"
I have a FQDN and my apache server is setup for it. Webmin and usermin are
the only things that report this localhost stuff on the screen. Is there a
way to change this so that it actually reports the correct domain name
instead of localhost.localdomain?
This is not a terrible thing but it does bug me a bit. I would like my
users to see something a little more professional than that. <g>
