Unhappy Apache issues


This a repost from Linux Newbies Fourm, seems that this query is suitable here, sorry for this:

I am using my webserver with Apache. However, there are some issues which i want to discuss with you guys for a better idea:

1. I have placed the following line in Apache, in Location section for some directory:
Allow from

However, this is not working as when I open mozilla on xxx and type in the URL, it says that you do not have the permission and if i give
"allow from all" it lets me access the directory. So i think Apache is not able to do the reverse lookup. But when i type dig -x is shows me the name, so i think that reverse lookup is working but somehow apache is not able to do it.

2. When i try to check the syntax of my webalizer.conf file, it shows me Invalid command 'Alias', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not loaded but my mod_alias is already loaded with httpd.conf

Any ideas?

Thanks and Regards,

Apache would work by reading the request header, and it is possible that your browser on reports the hostname as xxx in the request header and not Check the apache error logs and see. Also, try wget/GET from the command line on xxx. That would get you some suggessions.
