    Question IP address configuration Files?

    When instlling ubuntu server it asks you if you want to set up ip address, domain, gateway etc right during the process. Now there was a change with the IP address, so what i wanted to do was go into those files containing the IP address,gateway etc.. to change it. Can anyone help me out by pointing out in what directory these files are stores.

    /etc/ ..... I remember someone doing it a while back, and they modified two files that had the IP address.

    /etc/hosts may contain your own machines IP address (it may contain other machines IP addresses too).

    The other is likely to be /etc/network/interfaces.

    Here's a link too:
