edit your httpd.conf and look for the directive "ServerName".

just put your IP or server name in this directive.
ServerName yourservername

hope it will work.

Thumbs up Thanks... doing this for half a day already...

Thanks for the Reply...

I'm sorry i did not browse all the previous discussions, i saw the solution. Another service was using port 80, i accidentaly started TUX threaded kernel-based http server service.

I disabled that and Apache is nor running...

Thanks Again!
