Re: Changing IP address on Fedora 4

I've read many posts on the internet about the problems related to
changing IP address. We changed the IP on a Fedora 4 system now we are
unable to start httpd. I've looked for references to the old IP
everywhere. And the error_log does not tell me anything. Is there a
way to get more information from httpd?

Thank you,

Hi Philip Donaghy:

Ok, try this on the machine:
-----------------------------------------
tod tod-desktop:~$ ps aux | grep ht
tod       2475  0.0  0.1   2876   792 pts/5    R+   02:07   0:00 grep ht
tod tod-desktop:~$
-----------------------------------------

On my machine I do not run httpd and so you see only the reference to
me using grep to search for it amongst all of the currently running
processes (ps aux).

My guess is that you will find a reference to httpd alive and well.

My next guess is that when you changed the IP of the machine we are
probably talking about which is running the web server (httpd) that
you did not inform all of the name services involved of where your
"MyHostName.com" is now.  So people looking for "MyHostName.com"
cannot find your new IP.

You could also try opening your favorite browser and entering
"http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"; where "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" is your new IP (the
IP of the machine found by doing "ifconfig" as below (some numbers Xed
for privacy):
