Unhappy "httpd cannot determine local host name"


I have inherited Red hat Linux 6.2 Zoot. I am new to Linux, and do not have a clue about where to start with this issue. I have read some of the documentation on this site, and I am still a little confused. Please send help.

Thanks

Apache looks to /etc/hosts for determining the localhost name. Edit /etc/hosts and ensure that it looks a little something like this:

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
1.2.3.4 webserver.domain.tld webserver

(replace '1.2.3.4' with your real IP, and 'webserver.domain.tld' with your FQDN and 'webserver' with your hostname.)
