I'm running a small network behind an ADSL router and one of the machines runs freeBSD 6.0-SECURITY. I'd like to configure it to run apache22. Apache fails to start and gives this error.

How do I configure Web searches suggest three possibilities

1.  that this is a problem with DNS, edit  /etc/hosts

I've got this line in /etc/hosts localhost bsd-box

2. Apache is listening to devices that don't exist - I don't know how to explore that suggestion.

3. If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address in httpd.conf

I have this line in httpd.conf
Simplest means of correcting this would be to add your static IP (if one existed) for your server box on the network to your /etc/hosts file and then change Servname to match bsd-box. The more complex (but probably better means), would be to setup a DNS server (look up bind9 for this) and then just make sure that Servname matches your machine's DNS assigned hostname.
