Apache doesn't like me..


Ok, here's the info:

Redhat 9.0
Apache ???

Box set up as a home server with IP 192.168.1.2

-------------------------------

I've been checking the error_log file for apache and I keep getting this error:

[Date #####] [alert] (22002) Name or service not known: mod_unique_id: unable to find IPv4 address of "dizneland"
Configuration failed!

(dizneland is the host name of the machine)

I'm sure there is a simple answer to this, but alas it eludes me. I do not have any DNS set up, but do I have to? I am happy accessing this by IP address alone. I just want apache to start, darnit! It hasn't work since I installed the OS.

Help..

Do you have this

ServerName localhost

or

ServerName dizneland

set in your httpd.conf file?

I believe if you place "192.168.1.2 idizneland" in /etc/hosts file then it should start fine. You may also need to edit httpd.conf and make sure this is in there "Servername 192.168.1.2:80".

Please remember what ID10T_error mentioned (i.e. 192.168.1.2) is just an example, your ip address may differ as 192.168.1.2 could belong to another host in your network.

No, according to the post, that is the ip address. Unless you have multiple ip addresses.

Thanks all...

Indeed, it was an error in my /etc/hosts file. When I installed the server, I named it "disneyland" and after a while, thought that was a little too goofy (no pun intended) and changed it to "dizneland" (I know, what a difference).

Restarted apache... works like a charm. Awesome !!

Mike can you give some advise as to how get apache to work. I read your thread and after trying some the suggestions , I sitll dont know what I'm doing wroing.
Here is what I've done so far
in the httpd.conf file made the following changes:

in the document root lind: var/www/html
in the webadministrator: myemail
In the Server Name: my ip address
in the line where it reads listen: www.mydomain.com

however, there are two listen lines. Do I put www.mydomain.com in both of them?
configured the firewall to allow http

one more note, during the boot, i get the following message
"syntax error in line 296, which is the listen line.

any advise will be appreciated.

I think you should put www.mydomain.com as your server name, and just have
Code:
listen 80
for listen if you want it to use port 80 on all network interfaces.
or to get it to listen on a specific interface you put the ip address
Code:
listen 10.0.0.1:80
