Actually, it looked like one of those generic pages returned by the server when a page is not available. I went back to it again to see what the message was and it's actually a problem with the security certificate, which, when I ignore & proceed, I get the page I thought I was looking for.
Unfortunately, the information I want to get at isn't there. I need instruction as to how to setup /etc/hosts and the related files: I think they were hostname and host, I don't recall exactly.
I was studying them briefly last week, but I can't locate what I was working from. Any help will be appreciated.
