= Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName
This is a warning that occurs when starting up apache. This can be seen in the error log and
in the shell terminal output if using the command line to start/restart apache (apachectl
start, apachectl restart).

If you see this, make sure you have '''!ServerName''' defined in your httpd.conf or depending
on your distro or OS, your main apache config file or virtual host configuration file.




NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>

Additionally, if you're using a Debian-based distro, you will want to edit your '''/etc/hosts'''
file and add a valid domain (localhost.localdomain) to the line.


{{{	localhost.localdomain	localhost	your_machines_hostname
