Subject Re: [users@httpd] determine FQDN problem
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
Basically, it's looking at the ServerName directive and it isn't a FQDN.  I've had this issue
before ... trying to think of how I solved it.

Mind sharing with us the format of the hostname you set for ServerName?  Trying to dig for
some more info.

thanks for the explanation.
I have the hostname in the /etc/hosts, but the situation persists.
Is it possible that apache try to match my ppp0 ip address and failed?
I do not know the whole procedure.

but I do not have any other ServerName except in my vitual host config files.
