Switching from DHCP to static IP
I have been running my server on an internal network with an IP address specified by DHCP. I am now ready to switch it over to be a live server and need to change to a static IP address (I have a spare address for this machine).
I have edited the files:
The server boots up fine, Apache is running but I just cannot get any page up.
I think I may know what it is - does the server need to be given a hostname which appears in the DNS for this to work?
Sorry if I appear stupid asking this question, but I've scoured the net and can't find anything to answer it!
