When you restart your apache server using the command
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Someone get the following error:
Restarting web server apache2 apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName ... waiting apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName
Let’s go fix this issue !
This is just a friendly warning and not really a problem (as in that something does not work).
If you insert a
apache2.conf in /etc/apache2
and restart apache the notice will disappear.
If you have a name inside
you can also use that name instead of
And it uses
if it is inside your
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 myhostname
Use a text editor such as “sudo nano” via command line or “gksudo gedit” on the desktop to create a new file,
sudo nano /etc/apache2/conf.d/fqdn
gksu "gedit /etc/apache2/conf.d/fqdn"
to the file and save. This can all be done in a single command with the following:
echo "ServerName localhost" | sudo tee /etc/apache2/conf-available/fqdn.conf
sudo a2enconf fqdn
