Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName

HTTP service does not start and it gives above error when started.

Confirm in /var/log/httpd/error_log, following error message should be present at the end :

Temporary failure in name resolution: mod_unique_id: unable to find IPv4 address of "<HOSTNAME>"

Here <HOSTNAME> is the name of the machine, eg. 'mcsmail'. This error indicates that the http service is unable to determine the hostname from the IP address.


Causes :

1. The entry for the hostname is not present in /etc/hosts.

Solution : Add entry for the in /etc/hosts in the following form :

<IPADDRESS> <HOSTNAME>

Eg.

192.168.0.133 mcsmail
