Folks,
     Please be patient with the newbie. When I start httpd I get a message " Could not determine server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1  for ServerName".  The OS in question is Redhat 9. Can anyone tell me whats happening here and how to correct it?
Thanks in advance......

Your box's config does not allow Apache to find your server's FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name).

The simplest way here is to edit your httpd.conf (usually in /etc/httpd or /etc/apache) and set the following :

ServerName <your_server_name_or_ip_addr>

Also have a check on the /etc/hosts

ensure there are 2 entry

127.0.0.1                 localhost.localdomain             localhost
192.168.0.1             yourserver.yourdomain.com     yourserver               <-- the ip is your internal ip and which assigned into your linux box, unless you use the DHCP

in httpd.conf you either have a
  ServerName
and/or
  <VirtualHost >
directives  where you use FQDN

As said before: either add the this FQDN in your /etc/hosts (don't forget to use "hosts files dns" in /etc/nsswitch.conf), or use a working name server

Set the following, substituting your values for what I have entered...

ServerName www.myserver.com
BindAddress 192.168.1.1
port 80

Also, try...

Listen 192.168.1.1:80

take care!
