In some cases the Octane server name is not correct in the Site>Servers view


An error may occur when cookie sharing


The hostname is the host short name "myserver" or will be "localhost" rather than the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name)


1) Open /etc/hosts for editing

2) Add the following to the hosts file...      <fqdn>l localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4

For example:     myserver.mydomain.com localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4

3) Save changes

4) Restart the Octane service
