Hi Cam!!!

When I take out the ServerName directive from apache2.conf and restart
the server, I get the following warning:

root@satan:/etc/apache2# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

* Restarting web server
apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified
domain name, using for ServerName
 ... waiting apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully
qualified domain name, using for ServerName   [ OK ]

I thought the ServerName within a virtual hosts directive indicates
which name that particular virtual host responds to but the general
ServerName is used (for some purpose) by the general web server?  I
tried taking the ServerName out of apache2.conf and got the error
message above.  Still didn't work, unfortunately,

Where is the ports assignment done twice?

I'm posting the relevant conf files.  Would be supremely grateful to
anyone who takes a look at them.  I'm really frustrated and humbled by
this problem.   :-(   :-(   dirac.org and iuselinux.org are both in
sites-enabled / sites-available.

Thank you!!
