Plesk Sucks – Help with cname please ?

O.K. I am installing WPMU and the only option I have here is PLESK …

I got in with root and manually modified the vhosts.conf file, however for some reason pico will not work to edit the file on this server … so I may delete it and redo it with some other instructions I found including a new reboot …

All that out of the way I am to the CNAME portion and these are my entries

” *.<domain>. CNAME <domain>.

<domain>. NS ns.<domain>.

<domain>. A <ip>

<domain>. MX (10) mail.<domain>.

<ip> / 24 PTR <domain>.

http://ftp.<domain>. CNAME <domain>.

mail.<domain>. A <ip>

ns.<domain>. A <ip>

webmail.<domain>. A <ip>”

The top one being the one I inserted which I think is wrong ..

my problem is it has the following options

Record type .. Select CNAME

Then it has

Enter Domain name : ___________ .<domain>.

Enter a canonical name * : ______________ .

Where the only things I can enter or change is the _______

I changed this and I didn’t see where I click “update DNS’ but I waited a bit and tried the test blog I created and it isn’t working … Apache has been restarted etc .. Any advice on this ? I am almost positive I did something wrong here not anywhere else
