Question Apache fully qualified somain name?

[Tue Aug 13 11:46:32 2002] [alert] apache: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName

I think the above message is what is causing my problem. I am using the default httpd.conf which came with my debian install. Could this be the reason i cannot access my linux box, using my registered domain name, from within my lan?

You need to fill "ServerName" in Apache config file (httpd.conf). Insert your server full name then restat Apache and it should work (if configuration is correct, of course).
