 Read the manual.
 
 It quite clearly describes what the ServerName directive is and where to
 set it can be quickly figured out by looking around, thinking "hmm,
 configuration may be in the directory named conf", looking at *.conf,
 seeing "hey, here is a commented out example of ServerName that tells me
 how to set it", and setting it.
 
 You can't just sit there and not think and expect things to be handed to
 you step by step.
