httpd: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed for “hostname”

When I start httpd service,I get a warning :

[wpfmb type=’warning’ theme=2]”Starting httpd: httpd: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed for myservername, httpd: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName”[/wpfmb]

This error is caused by the improper configuration of hostname of server,to fix it follow the steps below:

There are three methods for fixing, choose one as you preferred.

1- Edit Hosts File and add myservername declaration in the end of /etc/hosts :

$ sudo nano -w /etc/hosts
27.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.l$
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdoma$
127.0.0.1 myserver.myhome.com myserver

2- Only edit httpd.conf :

$ sudo nano -w /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
  ServerName myserver.myhome.com

3- Edit network :

$ sudo nano -w /etc/sysconfig/network HOSTNAME=myserver.myhome.com

4-  Verify :

$ hostname
(output) myserver.myhome.com
$ hostname -f
(output) myserver.myhome.com
