  +  It means what it says; the Apache software can't determine the
  +  hostname of your system.  Edit your <samp>conf\httpd.conf</samp>
  +  file, look for the string "ServerName", and make sure there's an
  +  uncommented directive such as
  +  </p>
  +  <dl>
  +   <dd><code>ServerName localhost</code></dd>
  +  </dl>
  +  <p>
  +  or
  +  </p>
  +  <dl>
  +   <dd><code>ServerName www.foo.com</code></dd>
  +  </dl>
  +  <p>
  +  in the file.  Correct it if there one there with wrong information, or
  +  add one if you don't already have one.  Then try to start the server
  +  again.
