Please enter fqdn hostname
I am currently trying to install VestaCP on my vps using ssh. At a point, it asked me this
Please enter fqdn hostname:
Is this because I have not set up my hostname in my VPS? Where can I find my using hostname?
I'm not sure which I should fill for host name in this case, I should add IP address or my domain name into it?

I am confusing about this issue.
You should ask your hosting provider about hostname, they can configure it for you.

FQDN means Fully Qualified Domain Name .. if you have a domain registered you can a FQDN associated with it. e.g. if you have a domain name abc.com the FQDN will be myserver.abc.com , myvps.abc.com or server.abc.com . You have to first assign that hostname to your VPS and then install the vestacp.

Right , every control panel needs a hostname to be assigned on that particular server. Hostname is the identity of the server. You can set the yourself with the command hostname or ask your VPS provide to set the hostname for you and they will get it configured for you.

You can set the hostname by
and retry the installation

Don't know how did you get VPS without giving hostname for server.
Anyway you can find hostname by typing:Code:
Basically for your hostname in VPS you enter FQDN
I hope we helped you

Oh Sorry didn't take that in option
you have to find
file host and edit it so your hostname will be associated with ip
sudo nano /etc/hostsCode:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain 188.8.131.52 hostname.domain.com hostname
sudo systemctl restart network
check your host name
and then reboot if you need to be sure for good
