changing host name
I changed the hostname of my computer, and then restarted, as it restarted httpd failed to start, and failed to stop and then start in the services window. I changed the name back and it started just fine. Is there something I have to do besides changing the host name in the network config?
I'm using RH9 with Ximian desktop 2.
The reason I want to change the name is because I have another computer on my network that is trying to access a mysql server which is this computer. But I didn't name the computer the same name in windows and linux, and the other computer is still trying to use the windows hostname, and to top it off, I can't find a way to change the hostname to connect to on the other computer. The other computer basically says it can't find the server and stops. I tried stopping the IPtables service, but it still won't connect when I tried another application on the other computer. Any recommendations?
