did i do a bad thing?

Ok, I made an info.php file in /etc/httpd/conf/ with the idea of being able to view it through netscape to verify that it was working. Well, I couldn't get that info.php thing to come up right and when I went to stop or start the httpd I would get an error:

could not determine the servers fully qualified domain name, using for server name.

So I changed the server name to www in the network part then went into httpd.conf and also changed the server name there.
Now when I try to stop and/or start httpd I get no error but nothing appears to happen. When I open Netscape and try to get that info page, I get an error:

Netscape network connection was refused by the server 123.456.789.123 -not the real ip-. The server may not be accepting connections or may be busy. Try connection again later.

This makes me think that it is not running, correct? I was aslo getting the netscape msg before I changed the server name. Am I maybe just not doing it right, i type httpd stop to stop it. Is that right?

So, the big question is... -drum-roll- how do I make it work?

Please help...

Could you explain what you are trying to do?

It sounds like you wanted to verify that php was working with apache correctly, and created a file containing the function (If this is the case, then you want to put the file in the www directory to make it viewable in Netscape)
