Reconfigurator Manual Information
During the process of installing PSA the Administrator selects the IP-address to be used for name-based virtual hosts. This address is maintained strictly fixed and the Administrator is unable to change it by means of the Control Panel. The Reconfigurator utility serves the purpose of changing these parameters after an installation has already been completed. Also Reconfigurator allows the user to change the Administrator's e-mail address as well as the host name and domain.
Reconfigurator is implemented in the form of a shell script. It is located in the directory /usr/local/psa/bin. The name of the Reconfigurator utility file is reconfigurator.sh
The following are the functions performed by Reconfigurator:
Configuration parameters request
Set up of particular services (mysql, admin, webmail, apache, qmail, named)
At the first stage system checks are performed:
Then Reconfigurator requests the Administrator to enter certain parameters needed to further configure the system:

In order to be able to use this IP address, you will have to remove it from the domain that is using it (specified by Reconfigurator) for IP-based hosting via the Control Panel.
Particular services are set up at this stage:
IP address - added to the database and used for Name-based virtual hosts. If there was an IP-based hosting on this IP before, Reconfigurator will issue a warning and exit without making any changes. The DNS(named) service is reconfigured accordingly.
