Hey folks. Sorry about the non-descriptive subject, I just couldn't think
of anything else that was short and sweet.
I just reinstalled Linux and Slash and the whole she-bang to clean my
slate and add DNS services to my test server I run from home. I've (as far
as I can tell) configured DNS to work properly -- names resolve on both
sides of my firewall to the right IP addresses, IPs resolve to the right
names. So I installed Slash through the whole process with little error,
only some trouble with some of the Perl Modules.
But when it came time to start Apache (after including slash.conf) I got
the error "[alert] httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified
domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName" I didn't get this error
before, but I was using localhost as a site before, now I have a registered
domain. I found the ServerName entry in httpd.conf and changed it to my
FQDN -- the same on I used for the Slash install.
But not before testing, and either way I have the same results. All I can
get when I try to access my site is the default Apache test page. I try by
name, IP, 127.0.0.1, and localhost, but all get me the same thing. I've
gotten to the last point that I can do this myself and throw myself at the
mercy of the mailing list -- does anyone have any idea what I did wrong,
and yes, I admit that it is likely something I did wrong, so feel free to
Thanks to anyone who spends a moment to answer.
