not able to start up apache correctly due to fqdn issue


Hello everybody..

Problem received when I start apache(./apachectl start):
[root@voyager bin]# ./apachectl start
httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 192.168.2.4 for ServerName

-running mandrake 9.2
-trying to setup a namebased virtual host...
-apache seems to be running because the default page does appear..
------------
/etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.2.4 voyager
hostname=voyager
----------------------
/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. copy/pasted part of it..
ServerType standalone
ServerRoot /wwwroot/apache2
ServerName voyager
#LockFile /etc/httpd/httpd.lock
PidFile /var/run/httpd.pid
ScoreBoardFile /etc/httpd/httpd.scoreboard
ErrorLog logs/error_log
LogLevel warn
ResourceConfig /dev/null
AccessConfig /dev/null
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
-------------------------------------------------
/etc/sysconfig/network
HOSTNAME=voyager
NETWORKING=yes
GATEWAY=192.168.2.1

I'm fairly certain that the last line
shouldn't be there ... never seen
any entries like that one before :)
and the man page certainly doesn't
warrant it, either.


Cheers,

HI thanks for the reply..

------------
/etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.2.4 voyager
hostname=voyager

i added the last line based on a research i did to resolve this problem but problem still remains.

but if its incorrect i will remove it.
problem still remains

Next question ... is the machine only meant
to be visible on your intranet?

What does your /etc/host.conf look like?
Code:
order hosts, bind
multi on
Cheers,
Tink

the machine is being setup to be visible from the internet. so, it will be available to be accessed through the internet..

as per the file /etc/host.conf

order hosts, bind
multi on
nospoof on
spooflaert on
