Description

Whenever i permanently change the hostname of a plugin-jail at the jail's /etc/rc.conf, I am unable to update that plugin anymore.
The console in the webinterface just prints this when I try to udpate:

Feb 14 07:58:42 vulcan manage.py: [middleware.exceptions:38] [MiddlewareError: Failed to update plugin]

After reverting the hostname change (set it to match the jail name), update works as expected.

Why are you changing the name of the jail? There is a reason this isn't allowed in the UI. Plugins are a self contained system and if you go mucking with them, then they will break. If you would like to setup your own then create a standard jail and upload plugins to it. You can name it whatever you want in that case.

I also have the same problem. But the reason for the request is, I cannot create the hostname with FQDN. Like "mail.testsystem.com.tr" instead of just "mail".

Hakan, please create a new bug report with the details of your system as this report was closed 2 years ago.
