      No worries - Rebooting will indeed run through the items rc.conf, but in general you can run any of those commands at any time. You can change the host name

        No worries -

        Rebooting will indeed run through the items rc.conf, but in general you
        can run any of those commands at any time. You can change the host name
        with the "hostname" command and it takes effect immediately. Restart
        syslog as well if you want the new host name to appear in the log files.
