httpd: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed for

I configure many Apache servers from scratch and I always forget how to fix the error

 httpd: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed for


It is pretty easy, you edit the httpd.conf file and look for

# If your host doesn’t have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.


Edit the ServerName entry to match your DNS servername.

The httpd.conf file could be anywhere depending on how you installed the server, common places are

/etc/httpd/conf/ and /var/www/apache2/conf


Once you have changed the file restart the server and this should eliminate the errors
