Moving apache from one host to anotherSo can you ping ? This sounds
like a DNS problem.

  Subject: [users@httpd] Moving apache from one host to another


  We are currently running Apache 1.3.19 on an HP-UX 11.00 machine. I'm new at creating web
servers, so please bear with me! 

  I have moved it to a new server - renaming the ServerName variable (from
to in the httpd.conf file. 

  I've also added port 5556 to the new /etc/services file as the apache port.   I can successfully
start and stop apache - without any errors.

  However, when I try to access the server via the browser I run into problems.  

  If I use IE I get an error that says 'Cannot find server or DNS error'.

  If I use Netscape I just get an error pop-up box that says the connection was refused.

  I'm just typing in the hostname on the browser - ie.  If I type I get the same errors.

  Do I need to re-run the configure, make and make install steps?  The doc. makes it sound
like I can change httpd.conf without re-doing any of that.

  Any ideas as to what I can do would be greatly appreciated.
