So. I have a dumb question.
I just did a clean install of of Fedora Core 2, moving from RH9.
I'm pretty much just using this server for Development, testing and whatnot.
On RH9 I had set up Apache, MySQL, vsftpd and someother services.
These worked fine.
Now. After the fresh install of FC2 I've been in the process of setting these services up again. vsftpd working and sql.
I go apache working as well, but this is were my question comes in.
On RH9 I had it set up so that I could access the web server by name from anyother computer on my network. Like this: http://mycomputer/
Where mycomputer is the computer name (obviously).
I have Apache set up and it's working fine, however I can only access it from it's IP addy. This is all well and good, but I'd much rather access it by name.
For the life of me, I can't remember how I set it up on RH9 so that i could do this.
Does anyone have any advice on what I need to do?
Do I need to turn on the DNS?
Is there a way to make an internal domain that I can access it from?
I already edited hosts but that wasn't it....
Now I'm kinda at a loss.
I googled my brains out trying to find how... but found nothing specific.
Anyway. Thanks for the help!
