Subject Re: [users@httpd] change local server name

I'm new at this also, but I do believe that you have to change you host name of your machine.
In windows it would be under network properties.

I'm using unix ( FreeBSD ). I changed my hostname by changing the /etc/hosts file. You can
have any domain name for your local intranet (meaning inside network) but people from the
internet (outside)  will not see it. You would have to register a domain name.

Look up host names for your operating system.

  Subject: [users@httpd] change local server name

  My question is not of vital importance, but I would like to know, if there is a way to change
localy the server name.

  Instead of typing :http://localhost/index.php, I would like to use, for exemple http://toto/index.php.

  I tried to change the "ServerName localhost" of the "httpd.conf " file into "ServerName
toto", but the only thing I got was a redirection to

  So, once again : Is it possible to change the default name of the local server ?

  Thanks for all suggestions.
