You can go to console and try these:

#hostname

this should give you the host name of the server and you can add it back to the UI of webmin.

Please go to the networking and section in your webmin and reconfigure the setting there, Otherwise directly at shell prompt you can edit the file /etc/hosts using any of your favorite editor.

Thanks

After what i did i lost access to webmin.
I expected a more detailed answer as I am new here.
But yes it worked.. thanks..

here is what worked for me
[root@Server Downloads]# hostname localhost.localdomain
[root@Server Downloads]# vim /etc/sysconfig/network
[root@Server Downloads]# vim /etc/hosts

edited hosts as desired and was able to access the Webmin again.
