Fresh install of Redhat 8.0, without the bundled apache rpm.
Downloaded and compiled the apache 2.0.43 source, as per the instructions on the apache site - in the documentation section; ./configure, make, make install,...
when i run apachectl start i get a msg saying that it was unable to find a fqdn, and is using 127.0.0.1
As the machine is on a LAN, and does not have a domain pointing to it (at the moment), what should i set the fqdn to be? (and where do i set this?, i've looked in httpd.conf but couldnt find it)
I have added Listen 192.168.0.4:80 to the httpd.conf file, but i still get the same msg.
When i try to access the default website, either locally or over the LAN (same subnet) i get 'connection refused'.
This is not a firewall issue as i have tried it with the firewall set to 'allow all' on all interfaces in&out bound (obviously only a temporary setup until i get apache working!)
A list of running processes shows that httpd isnt running, which explains why i could not access the website...the question is why isnt it running? What do i need to change?
-i've only been using linux a few months so give a few details or links to more info as part of the answer please :)
