Subject Re: [users@httpd] fully qualified domain name - Problem
Date Wed, 23 May 2007 02:04:00 GMT
Tim Johnson did speak thusly:
>When I restart apache2 on ubuntu 7.04 (amd_64) with the following command:
>/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

You need to have a ServerName directive in your configuration.

If you do not, and you don't have your DNS configured to allow a 
reverse lookup on the IP address, you will get exactly what you see.

>Is there documentation on this subject?

Yes, on the Apache web site. The documentation there is quite good, 
actually, I will say that it is outstanding for an open source 
project such as Apache.

All configuration directives for the core functions and modules are 
documented there. Third party modules will be documented elsewhere 
(sometimes quite minimally), you'll have to search for them.
