You, sir, are my new personal hero. Adding:

192.168.0.103 arcadia arcadia

into the /etc/hosts file did the trick. Thank you for all your help. I was about to give up and throw the piece of garbage down the stairs.

Well, apparently its having the same exact problem each time.

[Thu Jun 19 06:54:57 2003] [alert] mod_unique_id: unable to
gethostbyname("arcadia")

arcadia is the name i gave my system on installation when it was on the
screen concerning DHCP. Since the computer is on a LAN, i don't exactly
have a fully qualified domain name that I'm aware of.... would
192.168.blah.blah work to fill this field? On previous linux systems
i've set the name to be poo.poo or something to that effect with no
problem.


Thanks for all the assistance so far. I have quite a few things I plan
on doing, and they all hinge on getting Apache working.

Regards,

Erik

Try putting that hostname into /etc/hosts. I just checked with my setup,
and without the hostname in /etc/hosts, I get quite the same message:


[Fri Jun 20 18:50:43 2003] [alert] (EAI 7)No address associated with
hostname: mod_unique_id: unable to find IPv4 address of "klamath"
Configuration Failed

(This is Apache2)

I had checked that out earlier. That's the reason I was so confused. I
really have no idea what's going on and i haven't found anything in
the
errata/etc that says anything about Apache issues. I also tried using
normal apache 1.3, as well as apachessl. both do the same thing. They
configure fine but refuse to launch.


arcadia# apachectl configtest
Syntax OK

I have installed the base distribution

mod_ssl working. This has usually been a trivial task, but I've been
unable to make any progress, despite the so far wonderful
documentation. Any assistance that could be provided would be
wonderful. Below is my error message and uname -a output.

arcadia# apachectl start
/usr/local/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

Try 'apachectl configtest' to ensure your httpd.conf is correct.

Hello,


you may want to check if there are any abnormal messages in the log
files of apache (/var/log/httpd-error.log).
