How to change the hostname in Ubuntu

February 26, 2009 36 comments

To change hostname in Ubuntu or any Debian variant Linux, modify the /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts.

sudo vi /etc/hostname

Change the old hostname to a new hostname.

sudo vi /etc/hosts

Also, change the oldhostname to a new hostname,

192.168.1.100               newhostname

After done, changing the /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts, you need to restart the hostname service.

sudo /etc/init.d/hostname.sh stop

sudo /etc/init.d/hostname.sh start

And then you log out from the shell and log in back. Once logged in, type

hostname

to check on the changes you have made for the hostname.
