I'm setting up a laptop with apache, just to play, basically.

But apache doesn't like the fact that it can't resolve the

I could use the localhost name & IP #, which should work.

My laptop is named 'laptop' (

Is there a way to have the system utilize it's assigned IP #?
Or do I have to change my apache config to "localhost" ?


You can enter (assuming 'lappy' is the hostname): localhost lappy

in /etc/hosts and set the ListenAddress directive in Apache to bind to
that IP.

Oops. Listen

Too much SSH config-ing for me lately. :)
