Problem :

I have just installed the Apache 2.2.17, and I am using it first time.

Now when I try to start my server using a command service httpd start it gives me the below message:

httpd: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using ::1 for ServerName

Now I guess I have to set ServerName and a IP address as I search through Google. But I don't know in which file I have to set it.

How can I fix above problem?

Solution :

I had also faced the similar issue in the recent past. I did lot of research on it and found the solution on it. This is the very common problem with the people getting started.

Please follow the procedure:

1.    sudo vim /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

2.    Insert a following line at the httpd.conf: ServerName localhost

3.    Finally just restart your Apache: sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart


I was also NOT getting my Server Name. Inside your VirtualHost configuration that was causing this warning message, it is a generic one near a top of your httpd.conf which is by default commented out.

Change below code to

#ServerName www.example.com:80

To following one:


Hope it solves your issue.
