XF 2.2 DKIM name issue in cPanel


Active member
I'm on shared hosting using cPanel. When adding the TXT zone record for DKIM, cPanel automatically appends my domain name. So, even though I enter as xenforo._domainkey cPanel saves it as xenforo._domainkey.MyDomainName.com.

Is there any way to adjust this on the xenForo side to compensate for the name changing? The section is greyed out and not editable in the admincp.

Thank you for your response, @thomas1. :) Unfortunately, the issue is that cPanel is automatically adding my domain name to whatever I place as the name in the TXT record.

So I'm wondering if there's any way to allow for that on the XF side.

I am not familiar with cPanel, but xenforo._domainkey.MyDomainName.com the correct fully-qualified record.

Did you try to just save and check if it can be queried successfully?

That would be xenforo._domainkey.MyDomainName.com. (with dot)
Or xenforo._domainkey (without dot)

Without dot, the domainname is automaticly appended.
So that's how it is supposed to work.
