Apache gives [alert] mod_unique_id: unable to gethostbyname ("")
I've been trying to get Apache 1.3.27 up and running, but I keep hitting the same wall:
[alert] mod_unique_id: unable to gethostbyname("(none)")
I've tried to set the httpd.conf's ServerName to my ip addy, 126.96.36.199, but it isn't recognized. I've added the line 188.8.131.52 to my /etc/hosts and added the addy to my Listen line in my httpd.conf, and my hostname file is blank, as is evidenced by the (none). I don't have any exotic hardware, just an external cable modem that goes straight to eth0, and I'm running an otherwise well-behaved Slack 9.0. I can SSH into 184.108.40.206, so I know that I am up and on the network, I just can't seem to get the httpd server up. There have been several threads on Linuxquestions.org that have helped (the thread with postid=584485#post584485 was particularly informative, if not helpful), but most of those fixes have not helped.
Any help recieved will be greatly appreciated,
