Possible DNS problem?
Not sure what has caused this error on my home linux server but you may have an idea...
I'm running RH 9 with the standard software version for this distro.
I hit some keys on the keyboard while i was moving some stuff over the weekend and managed to lockup the server. I had no choice but to do a manual power off and on again. Linux fixed the file system and continued to boot as normal but failed to start apache. Now i hadnt touced a thing and the knocking of the keys hadnt done something i dont think.
I tried to manually start the service and it still failed etc. i looked in /var/log/httpd/error_log and notcied it couldnt find the IPv4 name for custard and something about a unique id module. After looking about on the net i disabled that module in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and the service started OK and everything is fine once again.
But if i go to the command prompt and type just 'host custard' i get a 3(NXDOMAIN) error? I never used to... but if i type the fqdn it works fine as normal. I think something has been currupted in bind? but i havent touched a file for ages.
you might have an idea.
